Biopic of the iconic French singer Édith Piaf. Raised by her grandmother in a brothel, she was discovered while singing on a street corner at the age of 19. Despite her success, Piaf's life was filled with tragedy.
Director Olivier Dahan wrote the script with Marion Cotillard in mind as Édith Piaf before he had even met her, because he noticed a similarity between Piaf's and Cotillard's eyes.
You're an immense artist!
Edith Piaf: I'm wearing high heels.
During Edith's first date with Marcel, a sommelier comes from Marcel's right. Marcel tastes the wine, looks to his left, and tells the waiter that the wine is OK.
