I can't think of a movie where the chronology was more confusing than this one. Constantly asking, "Who's THIS guy?" Cotillard completely disappears into the role though

An uneven, but moving biopic of Edith Piaf, who's tumultuous life story is chronicled with breathtaking emotion by miss Cotillard, who won a well-deserved Academy Award for her performance. Final Grade: B

La Vie en Rose is a French biopic of Edith Piaf, who was a singer and is regarded as one of the greatest international voices of the 20th century. Similar to Ray, Walk the Line, and other American films of singers, Rose shows Piaf's troubled childhood, a rise to stardom, and an early, tragic death. The film jumps around in Piaf's life, so at times it's a little difficult to know exactly where you're at in Piaf's life. However, the performance of Marion Cotillard as Piaf is amazing. She embodies the character so strongly that she pulls you in, even though the whole movie is in French.

If Marion Cotillard doesn't win the Oscar for this performance, I will not be happy. She actually became Edith Piaf for this role and the movie featured all her good songs. The directing was a little sloppy. Olivier Dahan has a way to go. He is not a great director so at least he uses great actresses.
