At the Theatre Des Champs-Elys?es in Paris, Igor Stravinsky (Mads Mikkelsen, Flame and Citron) premieres his ballet The Rite Of Spring. Coco Chanel (Anna Mouglalis) attends the premiere and is mesmerized. But the revolutionary work is too modern, too radical: the enraged audience boos and jeers, and a near riot ensues. Stravinsky is inconsolable. Seven years later, now rich, respected and successful, Coco Chanel meets Stravinsky again?a 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 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. Directed by Jan Kounen. (Partially subtitled)
