"Spectacle, a love triangle, heritage settings, bravura acting, witty dialogue, a bittersweet finale: There's something for everyone in Anne Fontaine's COCO BEFORE CHANEL..."
Hollywood Reporter

"[A] convincing portrait of the designer's journey....The film reveals, via meticulous period imagery, how the couturier forged a style that would change the way women dressed in the 20th century."

4 stars out of 5 -- "The sense of period has been impeccably captured in Olivier Radot's production design....[Tautou] gives a nuanced and highly watchable performance....
Box Office

3 stars out of 5 -- "[W]riter/director Anne Fontaine shows a sure hand when it comes to emotional button-pushing....
Total Film

"[A] superior filmed biography that brings intelligence, restraint and style to what could have been a more standard treatment."
Los Angeles Times

3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he film, while scaled-down, is quite beautifully woven, like a classic Chanel tweed."
USA Today

"With a mixture of brutal candor and tender sympathy, it charts the rise of an ambitious, difficult woman, taking note of the obstacles and opportunities offered by her time, place and circumstances."
New York Times

Coco is played by Audrey Tautou, and shes phenomenal -- self-contained, tightly focused, sparing with her smiles...yet giving off a grave radiance at every moment shes in front of the camera.
Wall Street Journal

"COCO BEFORE CHANEL is dreamiest when director Anne Fontaine -- working through muse Audrey Tautou -- views the world through young Coco's eyes, literally." -- Grade: B
Entertainment Weekly

3.5 stars out of 4 -- "She worked hard, dealt with people realistically, drove hard bargains and saw fashion as a job, not a career or a vocation....By underlining that, the movie becomes more absorbing."
Chicago Sun-Times

"This refreshing alternative to the usual potted biopic provides an absorbing look at a singular, steely determination as it was forged and annealed, long before it made itself known to the world."
Washington Post

Included in Chicago Sun-Times's "The Best Foreign Films Of 2009" -- "Less of a biopic, more of a drama....She isn't a brazen temptress but a capitalist..."
Chicago Sun-Times
