Olivier Dahan, La Vie en Rose



With La Vie en Rose, writer-director Olivier Dahan has cracked the biopic with his thrilling retelling of the tumultuous life, loves, and tragedies of France's great singer Edith Piaf. La Vie boasts the mesmerizing, towering performance of Marion Cotillard, who plays Piaf in France's "little sparrow" from her days as a teenager singing in the gutter for pennies to her last days as a legend who lived only to sing. Dahan talks about truth, casting Cotillard alongside Gerard Depardieu and Catherine Allerget as well as finding the Moroccan actor who plays Piaf's great doomed love, boxer Marcel Cerdan.
