Saw this film last night and it was magnificent! Cried my eyes out but it was truly brilliant.

SYNOPSIS
From the streets of the cutthroat Belleville district of Paris to the dazzling limelight of New York's most glamorous concert halls, Edith Piaf's life was a constant battle to sing and survive, to live and love. Raised in abject poverty, surrounded by hookers and pimps, Edith's magical voice made her a star on both sides of the Atlantic. Her passionate romances and friendships with some of the greatest names of the period - Yves Montand, Jean Cocteau, Charles Aznavour, Marlene Dietrich and boxing world champion Marcel Cerdan - made her a household name, as did her memorable live performances and beautiful renditions of songs that were listened to by audiences across the globe: La Vie en Rose, Hymn To Love, Non Je ne Regrette Rien and many more. But despite her determination to deny her tragic destiny, the "Little Sparrow" - as she was known - flew so high that she could not fail to burn her wings.

Director:
Olivier Dahan Starring:
Marion Cotillard Sylvie Testud Pascal Greggory Emmanuelle Seigner Jean-Paul Rouve Gerard Depardieu Length:

A couple of years back I went to see Piaff at the Crucible, basically it was a one woman show, but it was awesome, I went not knowing anything about her life and was blown away by it all.

I am going to catch this movie.

I have just watched this on DVD and I was stunned. Marion Cotillard wasn't just playing Piaf - she made you believe she WAS Piaf which, in my opinion, is the mark of a great actor (male or female!).

Stunning. That lady deserved her BAFTA. Must check if she's nominated for an Oscar - 'cos if she isn't - or if she is and doesn't win it, there is no justice. Absolutely riveting!!!!!!!!!!!!
