It is probably London but it could be New York or Paris. It is probably 2011 but it might just be 1972. We are not sure. It doesn’t really matter.
Naive yet confident, our character moves effortlessly on screen. Clearly not a model she’s a dancer. Her swings, her twists, every single move, every single gesture reveals it. She is feminine, sophisticated and deceptively sassy, with a simple yet deliberate elegance. The textures and colours are changing as the rhythm syncopates with the film, magnifying the fluid silhouette. At times, we find ourselves drawn into patterns, rich colours and details as the fabrics float gracefully in the room, as if time had just stopped for an instant.
The innovative visual approach combined with the dance movements shows how extraordinarily elegant and modern this collection is. Classic but slightly rebellious, timeless beyond its refined 60’s inspiration.
CHANEL N°5 film by Jean-Pierre Jeunet with Audrey Tautou and Travis Davenport
