I have a real fondness for all things French. My loft is heavily influenced by 1930s-40s Paris. I don’t know why I hadn’t seen La Vie en Rose until this weekend. I absolutely loved the movie about Edith Piaf’s life, although quite depressing. This rags to riches story focuses on what it means to be an artist. I absolutely adored the film’s production design, wardrobe and cinematography. Below, find a few examples of the remarkable set and costumes.
And one of my favorite quotes from the film:
If you haven’t seen this beautiful film yet, put it in your Netflix queue. The music is amazing, and the movie definitely deserves all the awards it earned. Marion Cotillard‘s performance as Edith Piaf is nothing short of brilliant.
