A film poster depicting Audrey Tautou as a cigarette-smoking Coco Chanel has left advertising watchdogs in France fuming — it has been banned throughout the Parisian transport system.

The French actress stars as the iconic couturier, who died aged 87 in 1971, in a biopic entitled “Coco avant Chanel.”

And to advertise the film’s release, posters were placed on bus and train advertising boards throughout the French capital.

The image shows Tautou laid on a bed holding a cigarette, a 50-a-day habit for which the real Chanel was famous.

But the transportation authority and the country’s Health Minister Claude Evin have slammed the ad, branding it “unhealthy and inappropriate” following France’s decision to enforce a smoking ban in public places.

The poster has been swapped by unhappy film bosses, who insist the image depicts the true essence of France’s first daughter of fashion.

A rep for Warner France, the film’s studio, says, “For us, the real poster is where Coco Chanel is smoking in a natural pose that translates her strong personality and her modernity.”

The line up for the 2009 Cannes Film Festival has been announced, and it promises to be a rather interesting year on the Croissette. Quite a few Cannes-favourite directors return to the fold – Almodovar, Tarantino, Von Trier, To and Campion – but there are interesting films in the line-up from the likes of Terry Gilliam and Sam Raimi too.

Tarantino’s bringing Inglourious Basterds to town, in news long anticipated and planned but now confirmed. Almodovar’s latest Penelope Cruz-starrer, Broken Embraces, will also play (if you really can’t wait, that’s already out in Spain), while Von Trier will bring his intriguing Antichrist to the Festival too (check out the trailer).

Johnny To is back at the Festival (following a storming performance in 2005 for Election) with Vengeance, and Michael Haneke is bringing The White Ribbon, a black-and-white film about fascism in a German school in 1913.

The opening film is Pixar’s Up, which was already announced, but now we know that the Festival will close with Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky, Jan Koenen’s film that’s one of two competing Chanel biopics, with Anne Fontaine’s Audrey Tautou-starrer lagging behind suddenly.

Brits-wise, Ken Loach is bringing his footballing drama Looking For Eric (starring, among others, Eric Cantona!) and Andrea Arnold is bringing Fish Tank after winning the Jury Prize in 2006 for her debut film Red Road.

Ang Lee will premiere Taking Woodstock there, after a last-minute screening convinced organisers to include it. Liev Schreiber, Emile Hirsch and Jeffrey Dean Morgan star in that. Jane Campion brings Bright Star, about the poet Keats and his love affair with his next-door neighbour, with Ben Whishaw and Abbie Cornish.

Korea’s well represented with Park Chan-Wook bringing Thirst, about a man of faith turned into a vampire by a failed medical experiment, and Bong Joon-Ho (of The Host) bringing Mother to the Un Certain Regard section, about a mother’s search for the killer who framed her son.

Out of competition screenings include Terry Gilliam’s much-anticipated The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus and Sam Raimi’s Drag Me To Hell.

The full line up is below, with the Director’s Fortnight selection due to follow in a week or two. 52 films from 32 countries will be screened during the Festival, with 46 of those world premieres. The Festival runs from May 13 to 24.
