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

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.

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.

I was really impressed because she almost had to carry the entire film by herself. I don’t know if it’s the characters or just the style of filmmaking that turned me off. This film does not …
