Barnes and Noble: La Vie en Rose with Marion Cotillard
I first heard Edith Piaf's voice during a dance performance at a Piccolo Spoleto Festival. Even a recording of her singing, several times removed from the woman herself, was a gut-wrenchingly beautiful experience. And, forgive me, I do not remember the name of the dancer, but she did do great justice to "The Sparrow" in her choreography. Fortunately, Marion Cotillard has since rendered Piaf immortal in this rose of a film.
