Thanks to the European DVD release of "La Môme," lots of video clips are finding their way online. Here's a clip (with Spanish subtitles)of what I consider to be the best sequence in an already magnificent film. Someone wrote that this clip alone could work as a short film of Piaf and we would know pretty much everything there is to know about the artistry of this woman--it is that powerful. And it is the perfect marriage of filmmaking, music, and acting.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is acting.
