Thanks to both Cinematical and PopWatch, we've got the first French-language trailer for Audrey Tautou's Coco Avant Chanel. Much like Sex and the City, I already know that this film isn't for guys in the least. Not only is it a luscious French period piece, but it's a biopic about fashion icon Coco Chanel. Unless you really appreciate fashion or love period pieces or speak French, then I suggest you stop here, because I know you probably won't enjoy this at all. But I will admit, although I didn't understand a second of what was being said, I actually really want to see this. Maybe I'll catch it when I'm in France for the Cannes?

For some rough translation of some of the dialogue, head over to EW's PopWatch blog.
Coco Avant Chanel (meaning Coco Before Chanel in English) is directed by prominent French filmmaker Anne Fontaine, of Augustin, Dry Cleaning, In His Hands, and The Girl from Monaco previously. The screenplay was co-written by Anne Fontaine and Camille Fontaine with script consultant Christopher Hampton. The film is based on Edmonde Charles-Roux's book titled "Chanel and Her World". Warner Brothers will debut Coco Avant Chanel in France on April 22nd and in the US sometime later this year.
