    It’s curious that there is no mention by anyone that this is also a product tie in for the film that Audrey is promoting. She stars as Coco Chanel in “Coco Avant Chanel” which just came out in France.

    Great advertisement or short film. The scenes in Istambul include a scene inside a train station. Which train station is this? Do the inside scenes correspond to the same train station pictured from outside? or were the inside scenes filmed in another building? I appreciate your help.
