After having the honor of meeting Brigitte and Guy about 40 years ago,I Always wondered if I would ever get a chance to see this film.I'v searched through Amazon.com until the other day on Amazon.fr I found a second hand (fairly good condition) Video cassette. My opinion the film could go on a bit longer into the life of Piaf ,since the atmosphere was quite well caught half way the story. Sorry to say that I'v seen a B/W version ,if any colored one available?Brigitte Ariel fits the role of Piaf exactly and the rags she wears are far more believable than any other film production about Edith Piaf.So are the sets.Paris between 1915 and 1950 was picturesque and well shot ,even in the B/W version I could view.
