The life of Coco Chanel, focusing on her love affair with Boy Chapel.
This is one of my all time favorite movies. It is about the life and loves of an amazing woman-Coco Chanel- who rose from the bottom with no family or financial support and became one of the most legendary of all our creative icons. It is a very romantic story, sad and full of longing and yet very satisfying. I've seen it many times; I should probably buy it. Also, the music is perfectly paired with the emotional tone of intense longing and loneliness. I loved it. If you enjoy period pieces, as I do, and are a romantic, you will probably love this film. This is one of the first English films made with Rutgar Hauer and, in my opinion, he has never been better. His career really went downhill after this was made. He should've stayed with small, independent, thoughtful films like Chanel Solitaire.
