From The Daily Telegraph: It's easy to imagine Cotillard getting an Oscar nomination for La Vie En Rose. Should this not happen, the French would be quite entitled to revolt. More...

Generally, I'm a pacifist, but in this case I'd make an exception as well. I just saw "Les Misérables" on Broadway last night, so I'm particularly amiable to a revolution.

In any case, I'm glad that a lot of the critics are starting to "get" Dahan's story-telling choices (which the Telegraph insightfully terms as "fractured"). Count this review among the very few who single out both protagonist and film as singular works of art.
