Movie Review

We've been getting netflix movies and watching them at night.

"Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky" (2009), directed by Jan Kounen.

Great costumes, hairstyles, and interior decoration. Visually, this film is stunning. I get quickly bored with period pieces, though, and with the stereotype of the brooding artist. In this case, Stravinsky, who moves his family into Chanel's country house and has an affair with her a few yards away from his sickly wife. The movie kind of fizzles out in the end. I wanted more Stravinsky music. The scene where she discovers Chanel #5 is a bit too contrived.

I do fantasize about the room he got to work in, though.
