La vie en rose (2007)
The biographical film dedicated to the art and life of Edith Piaf allows the actress to be launched internationally, thanks to an excellent test in terms of mimicry and psychological adhesion to the character. Life in pink of Olivier Dahan it does not deviate from the classic rules of the biopic but uses them wisely, confirming itself as an effective and excellently packaged melodrama.

Called by Michael Mann for the film dedicated to the figure of the criminal John Dillinger, Cotillard responds to the appeal with a performance of enormous quality, giving innocence and ambiguity to an elusive character. Alchemy with a charismatic Johnny depp is remarkable, and this helps to make of Public enemy a full-bodied melodrama.

There are two other films we want to mention about Marion Cotillard’s hitherto remarkable career. The first is the Macbeth directed by Justin Kurzel where he acts together with Michael Fassbender, a personal and visually engaging transposition from Shakespeare. The other is his collaboration with Woody Allen: Midnight in Paris is one of the most successful films of the last period of the New York author, an uplifting and philosophical tale capable of giving Allen the fourth Oscar of his career, the third as a screenwriter.
