Even if you're like me and find most musical biopics depressingly formulaic, you might think Oliver Dahan's Edith Piaf movie is a slight cut above.

The French, as is widely known, adore suffering. That's why they love Leonard Cohen, Bud Powell, and Jim Thompson.

No regrets for Cottilard's dedication, but plenty for the clichéd pap of the biopic genre

In La Vie en Rose, Marion Cotillard has the role of a lifetime. And she relishes it.

Quite simply, is the best movie I have seen all year.

Marion Cotillard's Oscar win? Totally justified...Many questions remain for those of us unschooled in Piaf lore. I was confused by some of the causes even as I felt the emotional effects, thanks to deep performances.

Much like the colorful life of the film's subject, La Vie en Rose explores the strange and emotional life of torch singer Edith Piaf and gives Marion Cotillard an Oscar for her tremendous performance.

Cotillard joins Ben Kingsley (Gandhi) and Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) in so completely embodying a role that it seems more possession than performance.

Acaba funcionando mais como atestado do talento de sua protagonista, Marion Cotillard, do que como um tributo digno da magnífica cantora que esta interpreta.

This isn't the first time Piaf's life has been brought to the screen and it probably won't be the last, but Cotillard makes this particular version stand apart.

Marion Cotillard is the only reason to sit through La Vie En Rose, a biopic that compounds its basic tediousness by fracturing its narrative in a vain effort to mask a stale rise-and-fall arc.

December 29, 2007
Edith Piaf has plenty of tragedy in her life, so the movie is dark and moody, but it's compelling and Marion Cotillard's performance is impossible to forget.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 1, 2007
It's a mixed bag, snippets of Piaf's life in no particular order, crowned by one fantastic performance by Cotillard.

November 25, 2007
Dahan's film is less an ode or a valentine, more of a spectacle of pity, mainly worth watching for Cotillard.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
November 12, 2007
A relentlessly-depressing, warts-and-all biopic which depicts the untimely demise of a diva due to the toll taken on her body and soul by a combination of unfortunate disasters.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

French Edith Piaf biopic sings one lady's blues.

Marion Cotillard is perfection itself in this role.

September 6, 2007
... one of the best films about a great artist to be made since Milos Forman's Amadeus. Cotillard deserves an Oscar.
