In the 2009 biopic, Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky, French fashion icon Coco Chanel and Russian composer Igor Stravinsky are brought together in a tumultuous love affair that sparks creative genius and emotional turmoil. Set in Paris in the early 1920s, the film begins with Chanel (played by Anna Mouglalis) attending one of Stravinsky's (played by Mads Mikkelsen) early performances of The Rite of Spring. Though the audience is scandalized by the avant-garde music and choreography, Chanel is captivated by the composer's talent and reaches out to him after the performance.

As the two artists begin to spend time together, their attraction deepens, and they embark on a passionate affair. However, while Chanel is newly widowed and free to pursue her desires, Stravinsky is married with children, and his wife Catherine (played by Elena Morozova) is quickly made aware of her husband's infidelity.

Amid the scandal and public backlash, Chanel offers a sanctuary for Stravinsky and his family to stay in while they weather the storm. Stravinsky, who is struggling with creative block, finds inspiration in Chanel's chic and minimalist designs, and the two collaborate on a ballet that becomes a critical success.

While Chanel and Stravinsky's creative collaboration flourishes, their romantic relationship is plagued by jealousy, mistrust, and conflicting priorities. Chanel is fiercely independent and determined to protect her brand and reputation, while Stravinsky is plagued by his guilt over the pain he is causing his wife and children.

The film portrays both Chanel and Stravinsky as complex, flawed characters who are driven by their art and their passion. Mouglalis and Mikkelsen give nuanced and compelling performances, bringing depth and humanity to their characters' inner struggles.

The film is visually stunning, with gorgeous period costumes and elegant set design that capture the glamour and decadence of 1920s Paris. The music, of course, is also a standout feature of the film, with Stravinsky's compositions providing a haunting and evocative backdrop to the story.

Overall, Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky is a beautifully crafted and emotionally resonant film that explores the intersections of art, love, and personal sacrifice. It is a must-see for anyone interested in the lives and legacies of these two cultural icons.
