Critic Reviews of "La Vie en Rose"ReelViewsJanuary 04, 2008
This isn't the first time Piaf's life has been brought to the screen and it probably won't be the last, but Cotillard makes this particular version stand apart.Ebert & RoeperJuly 06, 2007
This is a surreal and exhausting experience.Chicago ReaderJuly 06, 2007
Marion Cotillard tears up all the available scenery in this overblown, achronological biopic of French pop singer Edith Piaf.Orlando SentinelJuly 06, 2007
La Vie is a movie so frantic to get to it all that nothing is more than touched on.Seattle TimesJune 27, 2007
This kind of heightened drama might not work in most movies, but it suits its larger-than-life subject: Dahan's La Vie is the movie equivalent of a torch song.Houston ChronicleJune 22, 2007
Compelling but punishing -- an artful ordeal. The best way to process it may be as unintended camp, rolling your eyes in amazement at its litany of misery and heaps of histrionics.The Stranger (Seattle, WA)September 12, 2010
Even if you're like me and find most musical biopics depressingly formulaic, you might think Oliver Dahan's Edith Piaf movie is a slight cut above.East Bay ExpressMay 05, 2010
The French, as is widely known, adore suffering. That's why they love Leonard Cohen, Bud Powell, and Jim Thompson.ReelzChannel.comAugust 25, 2008
Quite simply, is the best movie I have seen all year.CinerinaJuly 17, 2008
Marion Cotillard's Oscar win? Totally justified...Many questions remain for those of us unschooled in Piaf lore. I was confused by some of the causes even as I felt the emotional effects, thanks to deep performances.
