"La vie en rose" (2007) is a beautiful biographical film about Edith Piaf, directed by Olivier Dahan. Piaf is an iconic French singer who turned into a symbol of her country, and remains one many decades after her death.

If you are one of Piaf's fans, I'm certain that you will like this movie, because it depicts strikingly several moments of her tragic and turbulent life. It is impossible to denny that Marion Cotillard was the right choice to play the main character, as she is simply splendid as Edith Piaf, so good in fact that she tends to make us forget that Piaf is not longer alive.

In case you don't have the faintest idea of who Edith Piaf was, don't worry, this movie is an excellent starting point to learn about her. Of course, no film can be totally objective, but by the end of "La vie en rose" you will know some details about Piaf's life, and will have heard some of her wonderful songs.

All in all, I believe that this is a film that is powerful and worth watching, despite the fact that it is rather gut-wrenching sometimes. Recommended...

PS: The songs you will hear in this film are sang by Edith Piaf (Cotillard does lip-synching). My favourite song is "Je ne regrette rien"...

This is what skilled acting is all about. Marion Cotillard became Edith Piaf. Everytime I watch it, I get chills. This is the best performance by an actress on film, EVER. You must own this film. I never get tired of it. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll be blown away, time and time again. C'est magnifique!

Format: DVD
This movie is based on the life of the famous French singer Edith Piaf, and will drain you emotionally and physically (if you're not one for long periods of sitting still)

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. Little Edith has a hard knock life with her mother, and eventually is "rescued" by her father, and taken to live with her grandmother
2. Grandma's girls (and clients) call her "Madame"
3. She is taken under the wing of Titine, one of the girls, and learns about song and prayer
4. Dad returns and decides that he will be the stable influence in her life
5. ... so he raises her in a circus where he's a contortionist
6. Soon she's singing for her supper and hitting the bottle
7. ...and the needle
8. ... and continues to do so, stubborn as a mule, ruining her health
9. ... while singing her heart out

From the streets to the brothel, from the circus to the streets, from the streets to the clubs, through bad patches and bubbly heights, culminating in a passionate love affair and the inevitable decline, the viewer will love, hate and pity the temperamental singer, though not necessarily in that order.

Although not my type of music, and given that I normally shy away from long dramatic movies, there's no escaping the fact that Marion Cotillard gives an absolutely magnificent performance. The supporting actors, the settings and the cinematography make this a memorable watching experience.

This is not a movie to brighten your day, lift your spirits or make your heart soar, but if you asked me if I regret watching it, I'd have to say "Non, je ne regrette rien".

This is quite a film and not a particularly joyous one, but neither was the life of Edith Piaf. The life journey of Edith Piaf was mostly new to me and if the film was true to her life then it was a pretty tough start. She came across as having quite a few narcissistic traits, which would not be surprising giving her parents lack of care and concern for her needs.

The performance of Marion Cotillard was brilliant and the Oscar for best actress was well deserved. She truly lived into the role and portrayed well the life of a tormented soul.

This is an amazing biopic of one of the most influent French legend of this time. Edith Piaf's life is a true exemple of courage and love despite all great sadness and despair that fate can reserve.
You will enjoy this film from beginnnig to end. Whether you know Piaf or not, this movie will get to you. Her songs reflects her life as well as her hoarse and melancholic voice.
Of course, understanding french is a plus. I haven't seen the english version though, it must ruin the magic of it...like any translation unfortunatly.

And as for Ms Marion Cotillard's Piaf performance, I must say she blew me away. I have seen her in her previous movies but this I must agree with Stephen Holden from The New York Times who wrote:

"The most astonishing immersion of one performer into the body and soul of another ever encountered on film."

P.S. If you hesitate on watching this film, do yourself a favor and see it for Ms Cotillard's performence...trust me, it'll be for your own good hehehe!

By Kona TOP 500 REVIEWER on Oct. 7 2008
Format: DVD
The story of France's most beloved singer begins in 1918 in a squalid section of Paris. Little Edith is abandoned by her parents and goes to live in her grandmother's brothel. There, she becomes blind from an eye disease and is cared for by the prostitutes. When she recovers her sight, she is forced to join her father as a street performer. Her remarkable singing voice is noticed by a night club manager and she begins her meteoric climb to success, but it is tempered by a series of personal tragedies.

The beautiful Marion Cotillard gives the performance of her life as Edith from her teen years to her death at age 47. She is physically transformed several times and is utterly convincing as a scrappy youth living on the streets, a sickly drug addict, and finally, a near-crippled and prematurely aged, dying woman. She rightly won the Best Actress Oscar for this challenging role.

The movie is in French with English subtitles, but that didn't detract from my enjoyment at all; in fact, hearing the beautiful French throughout made it better. Piaf's voice is heard on all the songs and it's a voice that reflects great pain and inner strength. This is an emotionally-draining film with outstanding acting. Highly recommended.
