One of those films where the performance of the lead actor is better than the whole film.
I'm a sucker for high production biopics with top drawer acting, and La Vie en Rose certainly fits this bill--though it's not without its flaws. I would have preferred a more linear telling. I found it impossible to keep track of all the different faces and names; the rampant jumping through time certainly didn't help.
The film itself is kind of lackluster. It's pretty poorly directed and sort of muddled. The reason to see this is Marion Cotillard's brilliant performance. Possibly one of the greatest screen performances ever?
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
