La Vie en Rose is the screen biopic of French singer Edith Piaf. Marion Cotillard portrays Piaf, the superstar once raised by her grandmother in a Normandy brothel, then discovered on a French street corner by cabaret proprietor Louis Leplée (Gérard Depardieu). The film recalls various episodes from Piaf’s life – such as her lovestory with the French boxer Marcel Cerdan’s in mid-’40s New York; her period in Hollywood during the ‘50s; Piaf’s abandonment as a young girl by her contortionist father (and earlier by her mother, a street singer); her brushes with the law as an adult; and her 1951 car accident and subsequent morphine addiction that left her barely mobile; and, through it all, her ability to transform personal tragedy and emotional struggles into her vocalizations.
