La Vie En Rose

After watching a few foreign films on international flights, I have a new deeply interest in foreign films.

French lovers will adore La Vie En Rose, a French film about Edith Piaf, a legendary French singer. I loved it and by the end of the movie, I was almost brought to tears. Edith Piaf lived a life full of tragedies. When she was a child, her mother abandoned her on the streets so she could fulfill her dreams as a singing artist. Edith Piaf was always moved from place to place. People didn't always treat her the best, but wherever she went, she found love. I fell in love with all the songs, Edith Piaf and the movie as a whole. Edith has this unique personality that is a little bizarre to me, but somehow I understand her. She's a masterpiece I can relate to. Edith Piaf never thought she was bad at singing until someone told her and trained her how to sing. From all of my rigorous years of vocal/choir training, I know how difficult it is to perform and feel the music. Although Edith Piaf went through much heartache and suffering, she never gave up and found passion in music. I've learned a few lessons from La Vie En Rose. Always have faith in a higher power as well as in yourself. Love others, find love and never give up in love. You can't change how you were raised as a child. All your memories and everything you go through, lives within you. Despite all the negative challenges every one faces, I think everyone ends up living a good life. And I think Edith Piaf couldn't agree more with her song, "Non, je ne regrette rien" which translates "no, I regret nothing." La Vie En Rose is a compelling emotional experience with riveting music, an absolute unforgettable film.
