One of my all time favorite French Films. If you are looking for drama, passion and a real life story, get this film! Marion Cotillard was the perfect selection for the main role. She was completely vulnerable enough to show the necessary passion and drama portrayed in the life of Edith Piaf - the French singer who grew up with strife and a disarrayed childhood, to her crazy adulthood and beyond. She was named little sparrow because of her beautiful voice (and the film was released in France as La Mome). There's some humor in this movie too... which to some of my friends was silly... but I felt it added an edge to who the woman really was. If there is any doubt about watching this, just take a look at all the awards won: Cesars, Oscars and an Academy Award. Very arty, very moody. This is a movie for the art-movie lovers out there. It will leave you in tears and breathless in the end!
