Alexandre Desplat's Coco Avant Chanel
7-May-2009 - Varèse Sarabande has released the score for Coco Avant Chanel. It's the story of Audrey Tautou (Amelie, The Da Vinci Code), who stars as the legendary fashion designer Coco Chanel in this biopic penned by director Anne Fontaine. This film is not just a story about Coco's success, it's also about her struggle to fit in in a society that differed so much from her own opinions, about her losses and heartaches. Based on the Chanel biography L’Irreguliere (The Nonconformist) by author Edmonde Charles-Roux, Coco Avant Chanel features dresses from the Chanel collection. House of Chanel art director Karl Lagerfeld supervised the creation of accessories and costumes.The sumptuous and beautifully tailored score for the film was composed by Alexandre Desplat (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and performed by The London Symphony Orchestra.
