Marion Cotillard has a wonderful performance. Watch the bonus features for insights from the director and Cotillard. This is a drama. The non linear story line adds intrigue.

If you love her songs and know little about her life, you might want to skip this film. It piles misery on misery with dark lighting and as-ugly-as-possible close-ups that make the whole thing sadder and more disturbing than seemed necessary. A bit more time spent on the triumphs and joys of her life and much less of the pain would have made the movie a more fitting tribute to this amazing woman who has brought so much joy and solace to millions of people.

Brilliant biopic about France's national treasure, chanteuse Edith Piaf. Marion Cotillard puts in an incredible performance, and it's quite easy to see how she earned an Academy Award for it. The film is structured in a non-linear series of flashback scenes that bounce from the distant past to the years at the end of Piaf's life. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Edith Piaf's wonderful voice and Marion Cotillard's great acting make for a fascinating film. I wish the movie had also touched on Piaf's relationships with German officers during WWII and her mentoring of Yves Montand.

I don't see what all the fuss is about with this film- Edith Piaf was a talented singer and she had a hard life- how you manage to make a boring movie out of all this is beyond me.

This is a 2007 French and Canadian biographical film directed by Olivier Dahan.
It's about the life of French singer Édith Piaf.
The performance of Marion Cotillard as the heroine creates the almost lifelike and deeply emotional character of the legendary troubled singer.
It is a profoundly gripping and engaging docu-drama.
