  1. 1. Oliver Dahan, 2007
  2. 2. A biopic about the French singer Edith Piaf. The film was written and directed by Olivier Dahan, and starred Marion Cotillard as Piaf. Marion Cotillard won 7 major Best Actress Awards for her portrayal of Édith Piaf in La Vie en Rose. In some shots the true voice of Marion Cotillard is heard, but most of the time the play-back with the voice of Edith Piaf is used.
  3. 3. Biography of the famous French singer Edith Piaf (1915-1963): her childhood, her teenage years and her ascension to glory. From the slums of Paris to the limelight of New York.  Edith Piaf's life was a struggle for survival and love. She grew up amid poverty but her magical voice and her passionate romances and friendships with the great personalities of the era made her a global star.
  4. 4. Marion Cotillard portrays Piaf, the superstar once raised as a young girl by her grandmother in a Normandy bordello.  Then discovered on a French street corner - as a complete unknown – by cabaret proprietor Louis Leplée (Gérard Depardieu)
  5. 5. The film segues breezily between various episodes from Piaf's life,  such as her lover, French boxer Marcel Cerdan's (Jean-Pierre Martins)her period in Hollywood during the '50s; In contrast the film also shows Piaf's abandonment as a young girl by her contortionist father (and earlier by her mother, a street singer)
  6. 6. Her brushes with the law as an adult; and her car accident and subsequent morphine addiction that caused her to age well beyond her years and left her barely mobile; and, through it all, her ability to funnel personal tragedy and emotional struggles into her vocalizations -- dazzling audiences in the process
  7. 7. The interpretive power of Marion in the character of Edith.  Soundtrack… Piaf’ songs are the reflection of each moment of her life The great skill of the director and the writer of scripts to move with the speech of each of the characters. The passion and intensity for life, for acting on stage. The madness of loving what you do and give everything in life.
