‘La Vie en Rose’ tells of the passionate life of the most loved and famous French singer Edith Piaf from poverty to fame

The French film title of La Mome (the chick) epitomises how Edith Piaf is thought of in France. She was one of  the French's most beloved vocalists, who became a national icon. Her funeral procession was followed by hundreds of thousands of mourners – the only time since the end of WWII that Parisian traffic came to a halt. Edith Piaf’s songs reflected her tragic life, with her specialty being poignant ballads performed in a heartbreaking voice including the film title "La vie en rose" and "Non, je ne regrette rien".

The movie tells of her journey from childhood poverty in the slums of Paris to the limelight of New York with her constant battle to sing, survive, live and love. It stars Marion Cotillard as Edith Piaf (from A Good Year) and veteran French actor Gerard Depardieu. While the movie is a little long and disjointed, it is worth seeing to find out about this special woman.
