La Vie En Rose

That's right! You guessed it! The next movie I received from Netflix was "La Vie En Rose". This was a long and beautiful film, indeed. To talk about this movie, you can't ignore the musical genius that was Edith Piaf. As well, the actress Marion Cotillard blew me away. If ever there was a movie where an actor or actress had to portray a person who once existed, this has got to be the most accurate performance besides say Jamie Foxx as Ray Charles, that I've seen.

Here's footage of a live performance of Edith Piaf from 1954 singing "La Vie En Rose":

And here's the trailer for the film:

Absolutely beautiful story translated in film. Marion Cotillard won the Academy Award for her performance.

If I had stars....ok 5, it gets 5. End of story. Watch it, ya damn lazy American. Read them subtitles and enjoy it. Culture in yo face!
