DOBERMANN?s Jan Kounen directs this drama that chronicles the romance between fashion designer Coco Chanel (Anna Mouglalis, MERCI POUR LE CHOCOLAT) and composer Igor Stravinsky (Mads Mikkelsen, CASINO ROYALE). Though the unlikely pair meet in Paris in 1913, it isn?t until seven years later--after the death of Chanel?s lover Arthur "Boy" Capel and Stravinsky?s exile following the Russian Revolution--that they realize their attraction.;
