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.

Melodramatic but entirely engrossing especially due to Marion Cotillard's performance, which certainly ranks as one of the best leading actress performances of the noughties.

Oh, how tragic. And passionate. And beautiful, especially the ending is very nice - with scenes the last night when she dies interspersed with the first performance of "Rien de rien" (that she does not regret anything life). A little tough introduction, but what a voice she had. What I feel sorry for her who got jaundice early and liver failure and created a medical drug addiction and rheumatism at a young age.

Edith Piaf (Sparrow in a Parisian dialect of French) probably had the greatest success with the songs La vie en rose (1946; own lyrics), Milord (1959) and Non, je ne regrette rien (1960) - and was to become only 47 years young.

I have been recommended to see this ever since 2007 when I was in Germany after my studies in Lüneburg, by German friends who have seen it. So, finally!

This film is in the official Music list, the criteria of which states that the music must be performed by the cast. Marion Cotillard, though amazing, didn't sing in this film (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0450188/faq#.2.1.3)

The movie feels disjointed at times, but Marion Cotillard holds it all together in an incredible way.

Though a little muddled in the plot, the acting in this film makes watching it worthwhile. Individual scenes are done very well and it illumes a lot of the personal life of Edith Piaf I'm sure many fans would not have known otherwise.

When I read the producer's name Alain Goldman who also produced Casino, 99 francs and Polanski's J'accuse I should have known how disjointed and unstructured this movie would also turn out to be. Cotillard is of course amazing though.

Marion Cotillard is awesome but the movie is not so brilliant, confusing and very depressing

Marion Cotillard is superb! But the film itself felt soooo long and boring.
