La Vie en Rose – get them Oscars ready!

That funny little bag lady of French music makes a lovely bio-pic!

Piaf d'Or

There are only four Best Actress Oscars left for this year (ceremony on February 28th next year, btw) as there’s no way on God’s green and brown (with bits of grey) earth this woman in a jaunty sailor cap – Marion Cotillard – ain’t getting one for her turn as weird chanteusey Edith Piaf in new Frenchie blockbuster La Vie en Rose…

An epic of epic proportions, La Vie en Rose (sneak previewed in London’s glittering just off Cambridge Circus last night) tells the almost unbelievable tale of French singer Piaf (growing up in brothels? Check. Running away with the circus? Check. Heroin abuse? Check. How very different from the home life of our own dear Queen).

And it’s a cracker. You’ll even know the songs: ‘Je Ne Regrette Rien’ maybe. ‘La Vie en Rose’, which Grace Jones did a disco version of? But it’s the central perf of Ms. Cotillard – who goes from about 14 to a withered hag – that is going to scare up all the Oscar interest. Think Lady Sings the Blues in Paris. Don’t think Dreamgirls because there is actually acting and everything in this. And this is what the poster looks like – except it’ll say La Vie en Rose instead of La Mome as no one knows what a Mome is.

  
What's a Mome then?

  1. Is it wrong to fancy Gerard Depardoodar?

  2. No, it’s not wrong to fancy Depardieu: I think his nose means he’s got a really big one.

  3. May I refer interested celebrity cockwatchers to the film 1900, where you see not only GD’s dick (quite chunky) but also Robert De Niro’s (less so).

  4. If I remember rightly, he once appeared naked in a French women’s magazine, sitting on a plinth. What do I mean, ‘if I remember rightly’? I have the picture on the inside of my wardrobe door.
