Unfortunately, Marion Cotillard did not win a Silver Bear for Best Actress in Berlin – even though most journalists and critics predicted it.
There’s a chance to see for yourself how good Marion is as Edith Piaf: ‘La Vie en Rose’ screens tonight in New York. Here’s the quote from the official site of the event Rendez-Vous with French Cinema 2007 (February 28 – March 11, 2007)
“Each March, New Yorkers have the chance to savor the newest flavors and try out the latest fashions featured on Parisian screens with Rendez-Vous with French Cinema. Now in its 12th year, Rendez-Vous opens on Feb. 28 with an American premiere—direct from the Berlin Film Festival: Olivier Dahan’s fascinating portrait of Edith Piaf, La Vie en Rose. Graced with a mesmerizing performance by Marion Cotillard, La Vie en Rose is a worthy tribute and a compassionate look at one of France’s greatest cultural icons.”
Unfortunately, all tickets are sold out. A limited number of tickets may become available prior to showtime.
