An electrifying opening, a bit of a slog afterwards.

In the end, "Coco & Igor" doesn't really go anywhere, and it never quite equals the chaotic energy of that opening theater scene. But it's gorgeous to look at, as Kounen melds the heady visuals with Stravinsky's sweeping score.

Mouglalis lacks Audrey Tautou's feisty pluck but makes up for it with Gallic froideur, while Mads Mikkelsen broods as a tortured artist.

This French film's beginning is as brilliant as anything I've seen all year; unfortunately, most of the rest of the movie never lives up to that.

Refuses to dumb down its subjects for the sake of easy accessibility (the actors are truthful rather than likeable).

The whole movie has the immaculate visual gloss of a Chanel advert, which is no bad thing.

While it's not a particularly imaginative movie, it's a great-looking one...

It's a tragic and sophisticated love story.

Morozova's sulky silence is a suitable counterpoint to the imperious, independent performance of Anna Mouglalis as Chanel.

Anna Mouglalis makes for an icier Coco than Audrey Tautou, hardened by the death in 1919 of Boy Capel, the love of her life.

A beautifully designed but overly formal biopic that can't match the greatness of the artists it depicts.

Exquisitely styled, beautifully scored and redolent of eroticism and artistry, Jan Kounen's sensuous film restages the creative process as amour fou.

Both leads are strong and the tension between Coco and Mrs Stravinsky plays out nicely.

Although the sex scenes are explicit, the movie also uses grace and suggestion.

The performances are well-modulated to project exactly what the director, Jan Kounen, wants to say about these two people.

A sumptuous re-creation of '20s France and the mad affair between two of the century's most iconic figures.
