#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – An un-chronological look at the life of the Little Sparrow, Édith Piaf (1915-1963). Her mother is an alcoholic street singer, her father a circus performer, her paternal grandmother a madam. During childhood she lives with each of them. At 20, she’s a street singer discovered by a club owner who’s soon murdered, coached by a musician who brings her to concert halls, and then quickly famous. Constant companions are alcohol and heartache. The tragedies of her love affair with Marcel Cerdan and the death of her only child belie the words of one of her signature songs, “Non, je ne regrette rien.” The back and forth nature of the narrative suggests the patterns of memory and association.
Plot: From the mean streets of the Belleville district of Paris to the dazzling limelight of New York’s most famous concert halls, Edith Piaf’s life was a constant battle to sing and survive, to live and love. Raised in her grandmother’s brothel, Piaf was discovered in 1935 by nightclub owner Louis Leplee, who persuaded her to sing despite her extreme nervousness. Piaf became one of France’s immortal icons, her voice one of the indelible signatures of the 20th century.

Not Just Your Adverage Bio Pic!
I disagree with the previous comment regarding Olivier Dahan’s direction, which was handle in my humble opinion, with such an eye for detail and created a wonderful, caring homage to Edith Piaf. I do believe that the chemistry between Mr. Dahan and the heart rendering performance by Marion Cotillard is what made the story riveting and visually stunning. Piaf’s scattered “memories” are just what the film examines as she starts to dissect and remember fragmented moments in her life, and sometimes “in life” characters, relationships, lost loved ones are suddenly shifted and gone from one’s perspective without any notice. The use of “just” the right amount of music, was done superbly as to not just make this a “concert type” musical biography but an exciting joy ride through an era long since past. By the time the credits were rolling both of my shirtsleeves were damp with tears of sorrow and tears of joy in discovering much more about such a remarkable, true modern day diva. I highly recommend this film.
Marion Cotillard is wonderful, but the direction’s not so great
Although Marion Cotillard does a wonderful job being Edith Piaf, I didn’t quite enjoy the movie, mostly because of the bad direction. Olivier Dahan tries too hard to play with the flashbacks and get us lost at times. Some characters just disappear and then reappear just like that, and even though we kind of guess what happened, I wish we could have seen more at times. As for the use of colors (e.g. the extra use of Sepia at the circus, the NY scenes…) I believe this isn’t exploited to its best. As for the sound… I was really disappointed because at times, the tension builds, and the viewers expect a song that never comes!!! It could have been done so much more beautifully!!! Really too bad, because the actors are really breathtaking!
