FRENCH FILM SHOWING
Our next film will be on November 15 at the Cohoes Public Library at 1 PM.  It is “La vie en rose,” about the life of Edith Piaff. Running time is 2h 45min.  Piaff comes from the streets of Paris and survives using her only gift, her voice.  In this masterful biopic, Marion Cotillard gives “…one of the most inspiring performances in film history” as Edith Piaff. Piaff’s legendary voice was said to be “the voice of Paris.”  Her life was a perpetual battle to sing and survive,’ to live and love.
