La Vie En Rose - Extended Edition (DVD)
 from Watseka, IL,  Dec 28, 2007

I bought this for my husband who was born in France. He wanted to see this movie but it never came to a theater near us. I was very happy to find that it came out on a DVD and I was able to surprise my husband at Christmas. This movie was based on a true story of Edith Piaf. Everyone in France loved Edith Piaf. She had a rough life and a great voice. The actress who played Edith, was wonderful and she really captured Edith's life, personality and feelings. My husband was moved to tears. The movie was in French, but had English subtitles. My husband loved this movie and I liked it too.

La vie en rose

Marion Cotillard gives an incredible performance as Piaf. This is one of the best movies that I have seen in years and maybe the best actress performance that I have ever seen.

La Vie En Rose (extended DVD)
 from Boston, MA,  May 19, 2008

Over the top in showing hope despite stress, drama, pathos, love, success, and the magic of music to heal the soul. Although it won one Oscar, this film has been ignored and even rejected. Its small independent studio has been killed by the great Warner Bros. But this film will endur with its music. I am giving this DVD to my friends who have home theaters and they rave about it. The songs of Edith Piaf live on.

La Vie En Rose - DVD
 from The Midwest,  Jul 19, 2008

The movie was a poignant portrayal of the life of a woman I had only heard of and unknowingly had heard sing many times. It is the life of Edith Piaf. Her voice is often used to indicate a french influence without saying so. The performance of Ms. Cottilard is remarkable and harsh. It was hard to watch, but I can see why they gave her the oscar. She is totally immersed in playing Piaf. The movie might be good for the study of acting and character analysis. It might also be good for plot structure, but probably would be more suited to the college level. I have a movie library of sorts, so it was an investment. Not many will find it entertaining, but it might be thought provoking. If you enjoy wallowing in the suffering of another person or the gritty tragedy of the artiste, this is a choice for you.
