Music very soothing. I love to read while music is playing on low in the background. Found this one to be just right for me. Very European/French and I love anything musical that Alexandre Desplat is involved with.

I call the movie "Coco before Chanel" real art, real cinema! The screenplay was subtly written with scrutiny and directed artistically by Anne Fontaine.

Fontaine portrays Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Chanel with an in-depth view on her characteristic from all aspects of her life, circumstances, and impulses. Mesmerizing in every frame, every scene, the film focuses on Coco's gaze into her surrounding, in order to explore her contradictions, her persistence of being obstinately herself and her tenacious longing to become a self-made woman.

Fontaine explains: "This girl, coming from the heart of French countryside, poor, uneducated, but endowed with an exceptional personality, was destined to be ahead of her time."

Fontaine's film is not about fashion, but about a striving woman who tries to be independent and conquering a world which governs by wealth and men. Coco does not sit back and hope for something to change her life, instead she questions, challenges and learns from all the instruments around her to empower herself.

Film has many layers, many brilliant moments, and many witty dialogues which remain in us forever. More than anything else is the stunning performance of Audrey Tautou which brings out the richness of Coco Chanel's character, the mystery of her inner life as well as her sensuality, simplicity, elegance and exceptionality.

Before exploring love, Coco who believes love brings misery to women's life (as she had experienced her mother's agony) says: "Skin is skin, you just turn off the light!.." But understanding the essence of love changes her tremendously. Love strengthens her, flourishes her and elevates her to the highest level of determination and dazzling creativity. One of the captivating scenes is that after the death of her lover, Coco touches fabrics as if touching the skin of her lover knowing that life has blossomed out of death.

I loved Desplat's score on the movie Coco Avant Chanel. When I popped the CD into my stereo system and heard L'abandon, I fell in love. The scores allow you to picture the exact scenes from the film. There are some tracks that are poignant and melancholy while others are uplifting and make you (at least I wanted to) want to dance.

I found that although interesting, this movie was quite mediocre. However, the standout from it, is not so much the cinematography or costumes, but rather this lush score by the composer. I have loved his scores for all the films that have showcased his talent. This is certainly no exception. Beautiful! If ever there was a movie that should been nominated for scoring this one is it!

I absolutely agree with comments made about the musical score...it is understated yet exceptionally lush and captivating. The score really helps the film. I found the film to be very interesting...in places it is very artistic (in combination to the score)...other portions it lagged a bit. I loved the ending...
