I’ve seen it last night. I mean the movie. I know the reviews have been positive but nothing could prepare you for such an amazing story. Simply BEAUTIFUL. The movie takes you on a journey of the life of great chanson singer Edith Piaf. There were few scenes that I would skip but nevertheless it was AMAZING. The early 1900 France is shown so well: the streets , people, attitudes, way of life… The make-up and costumes were close to perfection and the songs very touching. I even dreamt about the movie- it’s so powerful I want to se it again.
Now the audience walking into the cinema was different cattle of fish altogether. .. mostly women over 55’s .. ughhh didn’t want to be part of that group.. mainly because they look grumpy and grey… and here we are again talking about the old folk…we just live in constant denial about heading towards the end of the life… Now – that will cheer you up ;)
