According to Marlene Dietrich, chanteuse Edith Piaf's voice was "the soul of Paris." This French drama explores the often troubled life of the singer as her fame took her from the City of Lights to America to the South of France. Abandoned by her mother, Piaf grew up in her grandmother's brothel and her father's circus, which is hardly the fun one might imagine. While singing on the streets of Paris as a teen, Piaf (played as an adult by Marion Cotillard, A VERY LONG ENGAGEMENT) is discovered by club owner Louis Leplee (Gerard Depardieu), and this chance encounter changes the woman's life. Her powerful voice takes her all over the globe, but it can't guard her from the pain and suffering she can't avoid. As Piaf, Cotillard is mesmerizing. She fully inhabits the singer's ivory skin, crafting a character that never descends into caricature or camp. She lip syncs to Piaf's legendary voice, but the performance is seamless. Like WALK THE LINE and RAY, this biopic creates a fascinating picture of an artist whose songs only begin to reflect the singer's painful life. But director-writer Olivier Dahan (LA VIE PROMISE) doesn't take the traditional biopic route with LA VIE EN ROSE. Instead, the film jumps between various moments in the singer's life, with little concern for linear narrative. Cotillard is just as adept at playing the teenage Piaf as she is the songbird on her deathbed at the age of 47, and it's her amazing performance that makes LA VIE EN ROSE worth seeing.

    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.

    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)

    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

    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.
