La Vie En Rose

France 2007

Seen 14 February 2009

The life and times of Edith Piaf told from her childhood days until her last days as one of the greatest artist that we have known. Her life is no bed of roses. Growing up as a sickly child, Edith was literally thrust up front by her father in order to earn the meal for the day. Her discovery by a cabaret hall manager started her actual singing career. A strong willed woman, with an inordinate singing talent, interpreting the lyrics, giving the songs her personal touch, she did reach the pinnacle of her career during her lifetime. But this was not the same in the love department.

As usual, real life is so much more beguiling than fiction.
