THE N°5 WAR - a french movie by Stéphane Benhamou (2017, 52 minutes)

In 1921, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel created her iconic fragrance, Chanel N°5, which quickly became the ultimate symbol of luxury. French-Jewish businessmen, the Wertheimer brothers, financially backed the perfume. Never satisfied with the ownership agreement, Chanel used her Vichy connections and the war’s Aryanization laws to try to force the Wertheimers out of the contract.
