Fierce

When a review starts out with the line "The problem with La Vie en Rose..." we know it won't be pretty. Still, the reviewer keeps in line with the aforeto universal praise bestowed on Marion with gems like this:

"Piaf is played by Marion Cotillard, in a fierce and brilliant and finely controlled performance that you actually don't have to be French to understand. The endlessly allusive, ruefully jaunty charisma radiating from her heavy-lidded eyes seems congruent with that of the sparrow's voice, which Cotillard lip-synchs easily and impressively. Better still, she makes good, strong choices to show how the life Piaf absorbed informed the artist she became." More...

Hey, I really admire what you're doing here about Marion. I was absolutely blown away by her too and hope she does go on to win the Oscar, as I doubt I'll see a more impressive performance this year. Here's my review of the film:
