[...] Von den bescheidenen Anfängen in einem französischen Waisenhaus bis zu ihrem extravaganten Leben in den Kreisen der feinen Gesellschaft von Paris werden die Stationen Coco Chanels als Sängerin, Näherin, gesellschaftliche Rebellin und Modeikone mit unbezähmbarem kreativen Geist nachgezeichnet. Benoît Poelvoorde und Alessandro Nivola porträtieren die reichen und eleganten Männer jener Zeit, die von dieser facettenreichen Frau betört sind. Mit ihrer Fantasie und ihrem persönlichen Stil - inspiriert von der Mode und voller Leidenschaft - ging Coco Chanel einen mutigen eigenen Weg mit neuem Look und Lebensgefühl, dem viele moderne Frauen bald folgten.
