An ok movie about a great singer and a very interesting character and a fascinating story. If you read the biography then you know that this story lends itself to a great movie. So it was rather disapointing that the movie jumps over timelines in a confusing manner. Not necesarry as a linear telling could have supported such a strong and eventful lifestory. Good acting all round. Satisfying and worth watching. Piaf lives on

I really enjoyed this movie. I did not know that much about Edith Piaf before I watched this film. I fully reccomend this film even for people, like myself, who don't know that much about the singer. There were lots of emotional scenes, some where I laughed and some where I cried. An inspirational film.
A Long Long Film

This is probably a very worthy and very good film. But I just found it long. The story begins in 1963, goes back to 1918 then heads to 1959 for a while. Why not just tell the story? All in all the acting is great. The story could be great but most of all this is long.
A truly outstanding piece of cinema

This is an excellent depiction of the life of Edith Piaf. The rise and fall of a musical legend pulls no punches. A deserved Oscar and BAFTA for the lead actress who is outsrtanding throughout.

I am a huge fan of Edith Piaf so I really enjoyed this film though I do remember seeing an earlier version that I think I enjoyed more.
