Le Journal - Marion Cotillard View Series

Difficulty: difficulty - Adv-Intermediate Adv-Intermediate


Marion Cotillard was not a superstar when she landed the role of Edith Piaf in “La Môme.” But, already a formidable actress, she had an impressive set of roles under her belt, and the film’s director had no doubt she was “the one.” He was right: Marion took home the Oscar for best actress in 2008.

An interesting note: The USA release title for the film – in French, ironically enough – is “La Vie en Rose,” the name of a famous Piaf song, which basically means, “life through rose-colored glasses.” The French title comes from Piaf’s nickname: “La Môme Piaf,” which can be translated as “the little sparrow,” but also means “little kid Piaf.”
