La Môme

Last night we went to the movies to see La Môme, which I think was translated to La Vie en Rose – The Apassionate Life of Edith Piaf in North America. It’s one of those movies that leaves you wanting to clap at the end while you stare at the credits on the screen going “wow!”. I have to go out now and will leave the comments for later, but I’ll leave you with the trailer…

Marion Cotillard does a magnificent job as Edith Piaf. I’ll never forget the scene when an older Edith collapses on stage and wants to go back on stage. Her manager says there’s no way, it would be suicide. She begs him saying “Je dois chanter, je dois chanter… j’ai pas de choix!” (I have to sing, I have to sing… I don’t have a choice!). Very powerful…

  1. Eu tenho um cd de Piaf; não escuto muito, porque não sou tão fã dela, da voz. Mas fiquei interessada no filme e adoro Marion Cotillard desde o “Les Jolies Choses”. E por causa do título do filme que fui ver que Piaf era chamada de “la môme” = “petit oiseau”.. Também pudera, a mulher era uma verdadeira cotovia, rouxinol, orgulho francês! ;-)

  2. Gi,
    O filme vale MUITO a pena… Eu não conhecia a Marion Cotillard e fiquei bem impressionada com seu desempenho. Como eu disse antes, quero muito assistir o filme outra vez…
