BLEU DE CHANEL – THE FILM from CHANEL on YouTube

Martin Scorsese’s taken a little break from directing shoot-outs, rockumentaries and psychological thrillers to create a little television spot for Chanel’s new men’s fragrance Bleu.

Starring Gaspard Ulliel (A Very Long Engagement, Hannibal Rising, Paris Je T’aime) and featuring the Rolling Stones’ She Said Yeah, the ad is almost a combination of Scorsese’s signature themes; thanks to the Stones, we can tick the rockumentary box, the flashbacks are enough to take us inside Ulliel’s psyche, and the story-hungry journos in the press room may as well be wielding guns for all the damage they can do. Ooh, metaphor for stardom!

Nice one, Marty.
