Here is another Chanel commercial for N°5 featuring the charming Audrey Tatou.
Like the Nicole Kidman movie, this one is beautifully retro in feel and lavishly made. There are elements I love and some that bother me a bit.
I like Audrey Tautou, but I can’t help but think she looks somewhat strange here… a bit haunted maybe? And the man is a bit too boyish and young and good-looking for me to take him seriously (I’m awfully prejudiced here, I know). In general I don’t buy their emotions, Audrey just doesn’t look convinced or convincing.
But that close-up of the bottle of Chanel N°5, the liquid vibrating with the train’s motion, and later the shadow passing over Audrey’s bed are just amazing.
Does it work for you?
Happy Easter to all! xoxo
