Watch La Vie en Rose - Alternative Versions.

First of all, I'm surprised no one has yet reviewed this film here.
Yes, it received mixed and mediocre reviews from prominent film
critics, however, I believe, it contains one of the greatest ever
acting performances in film history. Marion Cotillard gives a truly
powerful and memorable performance as the legendary French singer Edith
Piaf. This is reason alone to see the film.
I was curious and intrigued about this film, mainly because of the rave
acting reviews and Academy Award win for Marion Cotillard. I will
occasionally view a film, based on a great acting performance alone,
knowing that a great acting performance alone, does not insure an
exceptionally good screenplay or job of directing.
"La Vie En Rose" has an obvious major flaw: it's screenplay is very
non- linear and overly melodramatic. I'm not familiar with the real
life history of Edith Piaf. I had the impression the director and
screen play writer here, were excluding some important logical parts of
this famous woman's life. From early on in the film, the erratic
approach begins, and spoils the film.
Biography films have their own special challenges: what parts of a well
known person's life to show, in what style, what not to show of their
life, and in what sequence. I believe the best method for biography
film making is to begin by establishing who this person was, with their
death, and then go back in time to some significant event early in
their life and then move forward in time, in a linear style, until we
reach the end of their life. This method could be called "The Mobius
Strip Method" of biography film making: the beginning and end are one
and the same. The story ends where it began. A good example of this
method working successfully is: "Ghandi", 1982.
My impression of "La Vie En Rose" is: the director, screenplay and film
editor were moving around in time excessively, in a highly erratic and
emotional manner. In other words, the story cuts in the film were done
mostly or entirely for emotional reasons of the main character. This
apparent randomness creates confusion and loses the audience. The best
time to apply the emotional method of film editing to a biography film
would be the appropriate emotional ending of the film and an
examination of the person's key life moments and circumstances of their
In a nutshell, art films with a great acting performance, can otherwise
be failures, as is sadly the case with this film.
Director Olivier Dohan clearly has style and technique. I can only
assume he was an influence on creating and/or approving the use of
erratic, emotional based story jumps and film editing.
Back to Marion Cotillard. Besides her obvious talent and ability, she
did considerable research of the real life character: Edith Piaff, and
clearly connected heart and soul with this character. It's one of the
rare times, an actor, stage or film, can so effectively connect with
and convincingly portray the heart and soul essence of a character,
which is a special treat indeed.
