FEB - Mon 5th : LA VIE EN ROSE (original title: La Môme)
8pm | The Square, PUBLIKA | FREE admission
La Vie en Rose is the screen biopic of tragic French songstress Edith Piaf. Marion Cotillard portrays Piaf, the superstar once raised as a young girl by her grandmother in a Normandy bordello, then discovered on a French street corner -- as a complete unknown -- by a cabaret proprietor. The film segues breezily between various episodes from Piaf's life and her ability to funnel personal tragedy and emotional struggles into her vocalizations -- dazzling audiences in the process.
For her amazing performance, Marion Cotillard won major awards, as the Academy Award for Best Actress — marking the first time an Oscar had been given for a French-language role.
