Of course, if Edith Piaf is what you want, an actual Edith Piaf collection is in store, not this, but if you loved the movie, La Vie en Rose (or La Môme) isn't a bad option.

A dreamlike, impressionistic biography of the singer affectionately known as "The Little Sparrow," La Vie en Rose flutters around the various stages of French national icon Edith Piaf's eventful life, randomly alighting on the key, often tragic moments (nobody ever went to see an artist's biopic for uplift) that shaped her.

    A French Smash...And the acting was great!

    What a wonderful bio of a great singer. The acting by 'Edith' was amazing, and the songs were all there. Along the way, the movie gives you an historical glimpse of France post World War II, and a feel for the US as well. Makes me want to buy a CD of Piaf's work, too.
