La Vie en Rose
On stage she was a singing legend. But for Edith Piaf, life was the greatest performance of all.
From Director Olivier Dahan comes the long awaited biopic of the legendary French chanteuse Edith Piaf. Starring Marion Cotillard (A Good Year, A Very Long Engagement ) in the lead role, this impressive film reveals the extraordinary life of one of the world's greatest performers.
From the streets of the cutthroat Belleville district of Paris to the dazzling limelight of New York's most glamorous concert halls, Edith Piaf's life was a constant battle to sing and survive, to live and love. Raised in abject poverty, surrounded by hookers and pimps, Edith's magical voice made her a star on both sides of the Atlantic. Her passionate romances and friendships with some of the greatest names of the period - Yves Montand, Jean Cocteau, Charles Aznavour, Marlene Dietrich and boxing world champion Marcel Cerdan - made her a household name, as did her memorable live performances and beautiful renditions of songs that were listened to by audiences across the globe: La Vie en Rose, Hymn To Love, Non Je ne Regrette Rien and many more. But despite her determination to deny her tragic destiny, the "Little Sparrow" - as she was known - flew so high that she could not fail to burn her wings.
