La Vie En Rose is a biopic about legendary French singer Edith Piaf. Almost all of the dialogue in the movie is in French. Actress Marion Cotillard plays Piaf, and she actually won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of the character.

This was the first time that the Oscar for Best Actress went to a French-speaking role. Cotillard also won a Golden Globe Award for her performance.
