Chanel has hired Audrey Tautou and her Amélie director, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, to create a short film, a beautifully photographed postcard to Chanel No. 5. The commercial was shot in the famous Orient Express and called ”Train de Nuit” (night train).
The film follows the story of missed encounters between strangers (Andrey Tautou and French model Travis Davenport) who travel together from Paris to Istanbul.
The movie will have three TV versions of 60, 45 and 30 seconds, and the first 60-sec long spot will hit the U.S in fall. The uncut, two-minute-and-25-second version will also be used at counter in the U.S.
