COCO BE­FORE CHANEL Di­rected by Anne Fon­taine. Star­ring Au­drey Tautou, Benoît Poelvo­orde, Alessan­dro Nivola

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Filmlistings -

The early life of Coco Chanel. Twitchy Tautou stars as the fash­ion de­signer whose sleek, un­fussy de­signs de­fined mid-20th cen­tury cou­ture, but, a few clumsy nods to­wards later de­vel­op­ments aside, you will dis­cover lit­tle about Coco’s sig­na­ture in­no­va­tions in this dull, un­event­ful film. She rides a horse. She wears a hat. She hangs out with un­suit­able men. It’s rea­son­ably pretty, but that’s not good enough. 12A cert, lim release, 105 min
