Marion Cotillard: Best of 2007
Welcome to 2008! We would like to spend the first day of the new year looking back on 2007. What a year for Marion Cotillard! Promotion for La Vie en Rose in France started in January, the film had its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February and then continued to be released in one country after another. Marion Cotillard accompanied the promotion team around the globe. Final stop was Japan – she only skipped the South America tour. Afterwards she started to support Picturehouse‘s awards campaign. We’ve been treated to some amazing news & picture coverage meanwhile and let’s all hope when the Oscar nominations will be announced next month Marion’s name will be among them!

Both agree: The countless awards and nominations. It’s great to see Marion Cotillard being recognized for her amazing performance in La Vie en Rose. She so deserves the international break-through!
Both agree: The delay of the production for Nine – it will take forever until we get to see Marion in something new.
