Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky

Review: Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky

21 Jun 10

Beautifully told

In my book, any film that recreates the debut of The Rite of Spring is awesome.

This film is beautifully shot. The storyline is very biopic - as in this happened, then that happened, then this happened - which can be a bit boring. But it is beautiful.

They constantly reference the opening of The Rite of Spring, but not other pieces from Stravinsky's work. That gets on the nerves a little - why not reference other pieces? But it's good to see a composer stretching and warming up to writing as a boxer would.

Not quite 5 out of 5. A strong 4.
