It's like a Romance novel of a film
27 August 2004 | by (New York NY) – See all my reviews

This is good, romantic movie; what they used to call a "woman's picture" back in the 40's...it's like reading a good romance novel and really takes you out of yourself while you're watching it. Yeah, sure, the movie's facts aren't strictly true to the real life facts about Coco Chanel; sometimes the plot has holes bigger than Swiss cheese, AND Timothy Dalton is a bit woody in my opinion, but I dare you not to have a tear in your eye at the (bitter) end. Marie-France Pisier never looked prettier & her performance is top-notch, and oh yeah, Rutger Hauer never looked prettier either. I personally think his performance here as the charmer who initially seduces Coco is one of his best; certainly he's very warm & playful -- not a psycho or weirdo for once.
