Video Killed the Radio Star

Chanel N°5 today released 'Train de nui' (Night Train), a short film (aka fancy commercial) by Jean-Pierre Jeunet starring the precious Audrey Tautou and Travis Davenport. Tautou, one of our absolute favorites, will star as a young Coco in the upcoming biopic 'Coco Avant Chanel,' making her the perfect fresh face for the campaign.

The film captures the magic and sensuality of a midnight train en route from Nice to Istanbul. A sexy, young man is traveling alone when suddenly, he encounters a beautiful woman. Sparks! Strangers-in-the-night-excitement! Chanel! Oh how we love it when that happens!

Jeunet and Tautou have worked together before (he directed her in Amelie). Catch them in 'behind the scenes' footage at chaneln5.com or watch the film here.
