La Vie en Filme
Run, do not walk, to see La Vie en Rose, the great film about singer Edith Piaf. Having seen it Monday night at the Westhampton in Richmond, I felt utterly drained by the engrossing yet enervating experience. Marion Cotillard is riveting as la môme piaf. Indeed, if Penelope Cruz can be nominated for her Volver performance, Cotillard should be granted one this week.
Too, the cinematography and the editing is utterly brilliant. Too, with Olivier Dahan's direction, you get a great sense of Piaf's life--by its jumping forward, backward, then middle way in time.
Go see it!
