LA VIE EN ROSE: DON'T MISS IT
We were lucky to have an early peek at one of the best movies of the year last night and we don’t want you to miss it. It’s La Vie En Rose – a gorgeous European epic about the life of Edith Piaf, and it won’t be released here until June 8, so mark your calendars in advance. The story is amazing – it begins in the 1920’s in the streets of Paris. Piaf had a tawdry upbringing in a whorehouse and she grew up singing on streetcorners. Eventually this tiny common girl with a powerful voice became the toast of her country. Her romance with a boxer is heartwrenching and Marion Cotillard as Piaf is perfect. The story is beautifully photographed in exquisite detail (you’ll love the fashion – especially the little French suits) and absolutely fascinating – so engrossing, you don’t even mind the subtitles.
