Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky (DVD)

Jan Kounen

Paris 1913, Coco Chanel is devoted to her work and madly in love with the handsome and very wealthy Arthur ‘Boy’ Capel.

At the Theatre des Champs-lyses, Igor Stravinsky premieres his Rite of Spring. Coco attends the premiere and is mesmerised. But the revolutionary work is too modern, too radical: the enraged audience boos and jeers. A near-riot ensues. Stravinsky is inconsolable.

7 years later. Now rich, respected and successful, Coco is devastated by Boy Capel’s death. She meets Stravinsky again - now penniless refugee living in exile in Paris after the Russian Revolution, The attraction between them is immediate and electric.

Coco offers Stravinsky the use of her new villa in Garches, so that he will be able to work, and he moves in straight away, with his children and consumptive wife. And so a passionate, intense love affair between two creative giants begins.
