August 4, 2010
Exquisitely styled, beautifully scored and redolent of eroticism and artistry, Jan Kounen's sensuous film restages the creative process as amour fou.
August 4, 2010
Strikingly shot and superbly acted by Mikkelsen and Mouglalis...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Mouglalis cannot seem to find any redeeming features in Coco Chanel.

August 2, 2010
Both leads are strong and the tension between Coco and Mrs Stravinsky plays out nicely.

A gloriously shot but elegantly empty chamber piece

August 2, 2010
The ampersand in the title symbolizes erotic as well as grammatical conjunction, but 52 dull minutes pass before the two geniuses make sweet music together, and then they literally make sweet music together -- Igor gives Coco a piano lesson.

July 30, 2010
Too much of the time, the film seems intoxicated by its own sense of importance.
July 24, 2010
I haven't seen a two-hour movie with this little dialogue since Charlie Chaplin Tries not to Wake up the Baby.

July 23, 2010
Two narcissists do not a couple make, and without any actual relationship, there really isn't a movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
July 21, 2010
Chanel and Stravinsky did some bold, fascinating things in their lives, but this movie proves that sleeping together a handful of times was not among them.

July 21, 2010
Aside from Coco choosing among dozens of numbered designer perfumes (No. 5 will do, thank you) there's no sense of her fashion spirit, as in Coco Before Chanel. Kounan simply designs a sexy knockoff for the back racks of biopics.

July 16, 2010
Perhaps Chanel and Stravinsky were too consumed by their art and egos to be truly vulnerable and giving. Certainly they're not portrayed as likable.

The filmmaking style is rote biopic mode; events sinuously follow one another yet disclose few details.

July 15, 2010
The development of a perfume shouldn't be more exciting than the development of a love affair.
July 9, 2010
We plod through an hour of overheated looks between the leads, as well as sad doe-eyed gazes from the wife, before we see the lovers finally unite in a lukewarm passion.

Two of the most influential artists of the 20th century become simpering dolts in Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky.

If [the film] is only incidentally and by chance a compelling human drama, it's luscious to look at.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
July 8, 2010
There's fascinating material here, but instead Kounen and screenwriter Chris Greenhalgh too often settle for giving us a conventional and even dull love triangle: self-absorbed career woman, ailing wife, passive man torn between the two of them.

Jan Kounen's film is ravishingly beautiful, but inhumanly cool. The severe black-and-white deco interiors of Chanel's estate suggest an elegant chessboard where pitiless mind games are being played.

Like chocolate and peanut butter.
