In Deauville, the newspaper headline announcing the outbreak of the war incorrectly states, "Archduke Francis Joseph" had been assassinated in Sarajevo. Francis (Franz) Joseph was the reigning Austrian emperor and was not most certainly not assassinated. His nephew and heir to the empire, Francis (Franz) Ferdinand was assassinated. See more »

Moi, moi, moi, moi, moi!
15 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Apparently Coco Chanel was an unbridled egotist who gave no credit where credit was due and whose sympathy was reserved for herself.

Since this was a production of Lifetime, a network not known for its steely-eyed looks at real life, I must assume that was not the impression viewers were meant to carry away with them. Presumably, had there been more sympathetic moments to be portrayed, they would have been included.

On the other hand, this production passed over some rather interesting material, such as her cohabitation with a Nazi while Paris was occupied during WWII. I guess there was no way to give *that* the Lifetime treatment.

There are other interesting myth-busters in the NY Times review (link under the external reviews)...but I had watched and disliked this movie before I read it. I found the woman who played the young Chanel rather bland, and not even Shirley MacLaine's performance was any fun. Watching Chanel bully her employees and ignore their loyalty isn't my idea of entertainment.
