Review: Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky
Beautifully toldIn 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.
