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.

In the end, Coco & Igor offers little insight into its titular titans of modernism. There's little understanding of their individual aesthetics, let alone how they (hypothetically) informed each other.

...is a curious and moderately interesting film that, like many an initially torrid affair, eventually devolves into desultory ennui

It's well-shot and stylish, but slow and rather dull, with emotionally distant characters and a weak ending.

Coco and Igor manages to drag this sorry, unseemly yet hardly earth shattering affair into a two hour snore fest that barely leaves Coco's house and will leave you wishing you hadn't left yours.

It's beautifully shot and acted, but as with Coco Before Chanel last year, the one thing audiences will most want to know goes unanswered again: What makes this remarkable woman tick?

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.

Lit like a David Fincher music video and shot with a gliding camera approximating a wandering eye, Stravinsky strains to convince that its lascivious pleasures have historical import.

Beautiful but indulgent.

This thin slice of so-called history is both so narrow in focus and out of focus that even the most devoted fans are likely to be disappointed.

As the basis for a movie, it makes for a moving love story; but it doesn't really make much sense of two messy, complicated true lives.

Sunday Times (Australia)

This presentation of two artists pursuing passion without concern for social or marital rules becomes a well-groomed melodrama that deflates interest by closely guarding the feelings of those involved.
Leigh Paatsch
Courier Mail (Australia)
April 15, 2010
Both the performances and the dialogue in this film are incredibly stilted, further compounding the sheer boredom that takes hold in the second half.

It plays as handsomely dressed and decorated soft porn reverie: a kind of arty episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, without television's tabloid briskness.

The development of a perfume shouldn't be more exciting than the development of a love affair.

If [the film] is only incidentally and by chance a compelling human drama, it's luscious to look at.

Coco Chanel is presented as a heartless home wrecker in director Jan Kounen's pointless biopic drama...

Stilted performances and an odd whimper of an ending are further flaws in this good-looking but turgid period piece.
