It's Edith Piaf time, again.
Several weeks ago, after a long stroll through Paris from the Canal St. Martin to Les Halles on one of those unseasonably warm and luxurious days we have been having as of late, Ribbit and I decided to rest our feet at the movies. What to see? The Last King of Scotland was sold out, as was The Lives of Others which was a big bummer but Ribbit suggested another round of Edith Piaf as portrayed by the brilliant Marion Cotillard in La Môme.
The acting was impeccable, the emotion overpowering but the best moment in the film is a scene between Piaf and Marcel Cerdan the French boxer who became her lover, in a fancy French restaurant in New York:
Cerdan: So what do you do when you're not singing?
Piaf: I knit.
