Video: Audrey Tautou & Chanel No 5

I’d completely forgotten about Audrey’s appearance in the lengthy Chanel No 5 advert, directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet (who also directed her in ‘Le fabuleux destin d’Amélie Poulain/Amélie’ and ‘Un long dimanche de fiançailles/A Very Long Engagement’). I came across it while searching for information on the perfume for a novella I’m writing. It’s a fanciful advert, very much in Jeunet’s style. Whether or not the scent of Chanel has the effect it’s shown to have here… well, I suppose that’s a matter of personal taste.
