The Extraordinary Story of Edith Piaf
A swirling, impressionistic portrait of an artist who regretted nothing, writer-director Olivier Dahan's La Vie en Rose stars Marion Cotillard in a blazing performance as the legendary French icon Edith Piaf. From the mean streets of the Belleville district of Paris to the dazzling limelight of New York's most famous concert halls, Piaf's life was a constant battle to sing and survive, to live and love. Raised in her grandmother's brothel, Piaf was discovered in 1935 by nightclub owner Louis Leplee (Gerard Depardieu), who persuaded her to sing despite her extreme nervousness. Piaf became one of France's immortal icons, her voice one of the indelible signatures of the 20th Century.

This movie is astonishingly beautiful. The story is inspiring. Edith Piaf is flawlessly played by the amazing Marion Cotillard. My favorite part is when she played the older Edith Piaf. She was very convincing. I had tears on my face when the movie ended.
