Edith Piaf in Edith Piaf: A Passionate Life

Edith Piaf: A Passionate Life

2004 NR

This documentary about legendary French chanteuse Edith Piaf begins at her birth (which was helped along by a cop), travels through her turbulent romantic history, follows her to the pinnacle of her success and reports on her death. Piaf was queen of the torch song, her plaintive wail speaking volumes of the tragedy and joy she'd faced. Hers wasn't exactly, in the words of one of her famous songs, "&NFi;la vie en rose&NFi_;," but it was quite a life.
