La Vie en Rose.

Oscar-winning biopic of French singer Edith Piaf, with Marion Cotillard and Gerard Depardieu. Piaf escaped life in a Normandy brothel to become one of France's biggest stars. (R)
Award-winning biopic of French chanteuse and diva Edith Piaf, whose tumultuous life started in abject poverty on the streets of Paris and ended amongst the trials and tragedy of stardom.
I watched this a year or so ago and it is superb.
I wasn't much interested in Edif Piaf until I watched this...

Film Buff - The fild is superb, I have long been a fan of Piaf. If you liked the film you should read the book. Apologies as I cannot remember the title but the story of her life is almost unbelievable. From the gutter to the highest levels of society, unfortunately ending up back in the gutter.

Just put Edith Piaf into your serch bar, that will take you to Wikipedia where you will find a list of the biographies written about her, unfortunately some are better than others and as said I cannot remember the title of the very good one I read.
