Chanel No 5 Film Audrey Tautou

First Look: Audrey Tautou on the Set of the New Chanel N°5 Film

If you're a die-hard Chanel fan (like me) you'll be excited to learn that the new advertising film (otherwise known as a souped up commercial) for the N°5 fragrance was directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, and it stars the lovely Audrey Tautou. The setting is a train en route to Istabul. Picture a handsome man traveling alone, who becomes startled and enamoured by the beauty (and of course essence) of a strange woman. Billie Holiday is playing in the background and the sexy glimmer of an over-sized bottle is the main prop. Jean-Pierre Jeunet says:

"I’ve always loved night trains and their magic: it’s the perfect opportunity to create an encounter in suspended time. I really liked the idea of a woman meeting a man. They both think about each other, but continue on with their own lives, left with the regret that they didn’t make contact with the other person. I love to play with destiny and coincidences... I knew that the story would revolve around the mesmerizing effect of the scent in the woman’s wake. We had to give voice to the intangible."

Audrey and Jean-Pierre have worked together in the past on films such as Amélie and a
Very Long Engagement
. She was told to condense her acting and make every movement more intense than ever, as what could normally be conveyed over time in a film must be expressed in seconds for a commercial. The film, in deliberate Chanel fashion is set for a UK launch on fifth of May (get it, the fifth day of the fifth month for for N°5).
