|La Vie En Rose||—||—|
Marion Cotillard ("Big Fish," "A Very Long Engagement") won a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for her performance in this examination of the life of singer Edith Piaf (1915-1963), known as "The Little Sparrow." Piaf grew up in difficult circumstances, living at times with her mother, an alcoholic street singer; her father, a circus performer; and a grandmother, a madam at a brothel. A 20-year-old street singer, she is discovered by a club owner who is soon murdered, and coached by a musician who brings her to concert halls. Her rise to fame after that was fast, and her constant companions were alcohol and heartache. The tragedies of a love affair with Marcel Cerdan and the death of her only child belie the words of one of her signature songs, "Non, je ne regrette rien" (translated: "No, I regret nothing"). In addition to Cotillard's Best Actress Oscar, "La Vie En Rose" also took home an Academy Award for Best Achievement in Makeup. French-language film with English subtitles.]]>

I agree most definitely!This version: No subtitles for lyrics. A missed opportunity to greatly enhance the film.

Certainly a legendary performance and well-deserved Oscar win for Marion Cotillard. I think people will be talking about her work in LA VIE EN ROSE for years, though she is so gifted that she may well surpass this performance in the future.

|Was there a different version of this movie released in Europe?||
I saw the same movie in France while my husband and I were visiting his father, it just had a different title. That's all.
