Coco Chanel vs Coco Avant Chanel

this is the english version of the movie, called ‘coco chanel’, but as for the french version ‘coco avant chanel n° 5’. i am not sure if it’s the same plot but in different language or one is about coco herself and the other is the ever famous n° 5?

not much found about the differences of both the movies, but i presume one is about her life itself, from the her humble days to where she has established a name for the label she founded whereas the other is in a french setting, maybe somewhat nearer to the real feel of what she is (since she’s french).

coco chanel stars shirley maclaine, malcolm mcdowell and barbora bobulova while the french version stars audrey tauto, benoît poelvoorde and lisa cohen, to just name a few. 

“Coco Chanel” is the rags-to-riches tale charting the rise of one of the most influential fashion icons of the 20th century. From her humble childhood in a French orphanage, through her early days as a young dressmaker’s assistant, to her passionate and tragic love with a dashing Englishman, and ultimately to her success as a pioneering icon, “Coco Chanel” is the story of a glamorous woman who was hard to love and harder to ignore.”

a friend mentioned that the ‘coco avant chanel’ would be released in singapore some time in august, so watch out for that. i am sure it’ll send another movie craze in the design scene. for the time being, we’ll have to make do with the english version first, well better than nothing. so be patient! 20th august to be exact!

anyone has an idea of where can i get this film?
