Votre Passeport, s'il vous plait!

The bestest short film!

A brief encounter between a woman and a man in a train tale of chance and fate, the Orient Express..

Continues to find a deep romanticism in magical Istanbul..

Follows with "I'm a Fool to Want You" sung by Billie Holiday..

This film is designed by French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet
with Audrey Tautou and Travis Davenport. He's also the director for movie Amelie as you may remember.

The film shows the meeting between men and women while traveling from the Orient Express to Istanbul with the French end of the romantic story, ohh so emotional... And, two destinies are brought together by a scent like no other!

Yes, like no other!

It would not be so wrong if I say that views of Istanbul amplify the allure of the scent.
Now, watch "Train de Nuit" (Night Train), new Chanel No.5 film video

It's made to commemorate the anniversary Chanel No.5 to-88. Chanel and Istanbul; both are old, impulsive and unforgettable! What a perfect match.


  1. Ah! Can you watch this somewhere? I really like Audrey Tautou - especially in "A Very Long Engagement" and of course, "Amelie".
    It looks like a wonderful little film - and Billie Holiday as well - c'est magnifique!


  2. I came across this wonderful short clip coincidentally when I was watching the TV show "House" online yesterday and I fell in love with it instantly. The film reminded me of some James Bond movie a lot, I don't know why. :) Could be because of the Orient Express. :) It's so nostalgic! And Audrey Tautou is very pretty!

  3. How romantic, I'll go there anytime for 2nd honeymoon..or 3rd and so forth. I like Audrey Tatou, I remembered her from the last movie I saw with her in it, Da Vinci Code...have a splendid week ahead Nihal.
