Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky - the film based on Chris Greenhalgh's Coco & Igor - pays tribute to the life of Coco after Chanel, and as revealed in the title explores the electric relationship between the French fashion icon and the radical Russian-born composer. The two meet at the disastrous premier of Stravinsky's controversial The Rite of Spring, a performance that mesmerises Chanel, but due to a riot like reception, leaves Stravinsky inconsolable. It takes 7 years before they meet again in Paris – now Chanel is both rich and respected, whereas Stravinsky is living in exile as a penniless refugee. There is an immediate powerful attraction and she decides to shelter Stravinsky, offering him her summer villa in Garches as a sanctuary for his composing, as Chanel herself begins creating the revolutionary iconic perfume No5. Stravinsky moves in straight away, with his children and consumptive wife. And so a passionate, fiery love affair between two creative giants commence… The film stars Karl Lagerfeld's muse, a captivating Anna Mouglalis (Merci pour le Chocolate, Romanzo Criminale) as Mademoiselle Coco Chanel, and Mads Mikkelsen (After the Wedding, Casino Royale, Flame & Citron, Valhalla Rising) as an envincing Igor Stravinsky. The production of Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky has had the full support of Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel who have generously made available their archives and collections. Chanel also granted the filmmakers full access to Coco Chanel's celebrated apartment at 31, rue Cambon, Paris.
