"Having seen “Coco before Chanel”, and a few documentaries that have been made about her (“Secret Lives”, etc), I was disappointed by this film. I like a broad range of cinema – from the more highbrow at BFI and Curzons, to some of the lighter.
As Mads Mikkelsen played a particularly nasty “baddie” in the Bond film “Quantum of Solace” a few years ago, it’s extremely hard to think of him as Stravinsky and not torturing 007 by bashing his testicles with a rope.
Like Stravinsky’s audience, I walked out before the end. Perhaps I’ll try to see it some other time. You’ll need to persevere with this one."
