Coco & Igor



a weekend movie review, which I don't often do,
about a very unusual film which will appeal to women.


this is about the love story between Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky,
set in Paris between 1913 and 1920.







there are probably lots of movie reviews to be found online which will examine more fully than I
ever could all the subterfuge .

suffice it to say, it is a beautiful, visual treat...
the settings, the opulence, the lifestyle & the apparel

it is a French film, the acting is wonderful,
 however, there is really not that much dialog.

Coco is strongly independent, and with her success becomes even more so.

Igor has fallen on hard times, has seen the premier of his new symphony
"The Rites of Spring" be booed off the stage, 
lives in a Paris hotel with his sickly wife and 4 children.

Oh well, you will just have to see what happens with this scenario.

It's on Encore on cable, and Netflix has it.
no children under about 16+, cause there's nudity in the love scenes, not
frontal, but everywhere else...it's French after all.
