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).
Baz Luhrmann's Chanel No. 5 commercial (or 'film', as Luhrmann prefers it being referred to), reunited Luhrmann and his Moulin Rouge star, Nicole Kidman, in one of the most expensive and elaborate advertisements of all time.
