Amazing performance by the lead actress. I'm not a Piaf fan, but truly enjoyed seeing this on the big screen. Must see in the theater.
I have never heard of Edith Piaf until I saw the movie "La Vie En Rose." What she sings is totally different from the stuff we've been hearing today. I have also never heard of Marion Cotillard until this movie, and I bet that the Oscar voters who had never heard of this actress, will probaby get a Oscar nomination for Best Actress next January. She played Oiaf wonderfully. Piaf is the singer who went from proverty to the limelight. A affair which ended tragically, and a failed heath which ended her life in 1963. the film is tragic, but hearing her sing is magic. Her presence on stage is wonderfully done. this is the performance of a lifetime for cotillard. "La Vie en Rose" is a film which celebrates her life and her music. If you want to hear something different (and that message goes to young people who are addicted to top 40 music) this movie is for you. If you never hear Piaf sing, now's your chance to see this movie and get to know Edith Piaf a lot more. One of the best movies of 2007.
