Coco and Igor

I had not heard of 'Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky' until I read this write-up by Stephen Holden.

Directed and written by Jan Kounen and Chris Greenhalgh, the movie stars Anna Mouglalis and Mads Mikkelsen. Really, it's Mads I want to see. Loved him as the bloody-teared Le Chiffre in 'Casino Royale'.

I'm a big fan of Stravinsky's signature piece, 'Le Sacre du Printemps' (The Rite of Spring). It's so dissonant it caused a riot during its 1913 premiere in Paris.

So, will look forward to this one on disc.

NYT has a clip.
