The brief love affair between two 20th century icons is dramatized in this period drama.
Igor Stravinsky (Mads Mikkelsen) was one of Europe’s most promising young composers, until a 1913 debut of his ballet ‚ÄúThe Rite of Spring‚Äù was held with contempt by a disgusted audience.
Coco Chanel, already a famed fashion designer, was one audience member who was moved by the performance.
When she meets him seven years later, Igor is penniliess and without a home. Chanel befriends him and offers him a place to stay, beginning a passionate affair of the heart.
