La Môme

La Vie en Rose

(France/Great Britain, 2007, 138 minutes)

The tragic life of French popular singer Edith Piaf, from her miserable childhood to her early death. Lavishly appointed but disappointingly leaden biopic that wastes an outstanding lead performance and excellent production values in too much pathos and a pointlessly arty structure.
