Being entry level elderly, I had heard the name Edith Piaf in my youth but never had the opportunity to hear her until an erroneous click brought me to the wonder of "Non Je ne regrette rien". I probably would not have appreciated her in my youth but I just kept playing 'Non' over and over again because I could not get around what I was hearing. I have listened to a fair amount of her now and I still do not know what it is I'm hearing but it is stunning and reaches right through to some inner resonance. I hope the people who do propaganda do not figure her out because her voice speaks to my brainstem. And then there is Cotillard. I am not so arrogant as to even try to praise her ability because I have only inadequacy to express the praise necessary to her performance, her work, here. Stunning is as close as I can get and amazing might be on the list, and whatever else the thesaurus has relative to those two adjectives. Merci beaucoup, Mme Cotillard, for bringing her alive for us who had no opportunity to experience her personally.
