La Vie en Rose
I apologize for the lateness of the hour, but time does fly when one is watching bad Asian horror films. But here is a good film suggestion for you:
I am sure you all have heard of the amazing French singer, Edith Piaf, and I am also pretty sure that most of you have seen the film about her from 2007: La Vie en Rose. But I’m going to write about it anyway.
La Vie en Rose depicts Edith’s upbringing, partly in a brothel, partly with her father at a circus. At the age of 20, her talent is discovered by a night club owner, while working as a street singer. She is given a voice coach and quickly rises to fame as “the Little Sparrow”.
The cast includes the wonderful Marion Cotillard (as Piaf), and Gérard Depardieu. I highly recommend this film if you have not already seen it. It is heartwarming, heartbreaking and everything in between. And if you’ve seen it, why not see it again?
