Last night, I finally sat down and watched La Vie en Rose on the small screen. Wow! I was duly impressed by Marion Cotillard's performance - that Oscar was well deserved.
As for the movie itself - a bit disjointed, but still enjoyable. After several years of French (and an instructor who was a fan of Piaf), I know the story of Edith Piaf which was beneficial in watching this film. For those not familiar with her life, I think it might have been a wee bit confusing. Still, I was moved by the movie and found my eyes misty when the credits rolled.
Mark and I did not visit Père-Lachaise Cemetery while we were in Paris -- something that I intend to correct next time we are there. Not that a trip to Paris is planned anytime soon, but it's one of the few touristy places in Paris that we haven't visited.
