5.0 out of 5 stars Piaf Lover dont miss 25 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is the soundtrack of one of the best and most memorable films I have seen this year. The CD is a wondeful reminder of the beauty of Piafs singing, Cant wait for the DVD to come out if you can see ther Film It contains all the songs from the film except the French National Anthem sung while a child which I owuld have liked on there, there are many other titles that are not by Paif but nset the scene of her life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gunning's original music is spot on! 7 Aug 2007
Format:Audio CD
Veteran Christopher Gunning, best known for his television work on "Poirot" has been scoring music since 1970 (try and find his exceptional "Goodbye Gemini" aka "Twinsanity" soundtrack on Harkit Records).

The choice for scoring this work (wrongly described as a biopic; more a series of scenes from Edith Piaf's life really), works especially well.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant 29 July 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
i would say brilliant i loved the movie, the tracks are reminiscent of each scenes and can take you into the screenplay immediately which after a while became irritating as i just wished to hear the songs. overall still a great purchase.great value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two strong recommendations 4 Sep 2007
By haregrog - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
By placing a passel of Piaf's originals at the beginning of this excellent three-act soundtrack, inevitably anything that follows her set will have a hard time holding up. But the score for this beautiful movie can stand on its own, and fulfills the promise, so often abused, that film offers the last great hope for orchestral music. This short set tastefully reflects on moments of melancholy and transcendence and is, occasionally, breathtaking.

The other amazing thing about this soundtrack that makes it worth having, even alongside one or two other Piaf collections you may already own, is the rich re-mastering of many of Piaf's signature tracks. I never knew it could be done with such technical proficiency while retaining the general tone and atmosphere of the recordings that, along with Piaf's timeless singing, makes them immortal.

If only her original French "La Vie en Rose" and a few others had also been remastered and included as well, but that was clearly outside the scope of this project. What's here is wonderful, even among the (quite understandably) weaker "third act" interpretations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great! Could have been superb! 8 Aug 2007
By Infirmiere - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of Piaf since I was a child in France. I have multiple LPs and CDs. I saw and loved the movie "La Vie En Rose" and had to have the soundtrack. The Piaf songs are wonderful, so clear and crisp you can hear the nuances of her voice. The "original music" was okay. But, no one should try to "interpret" Piaf's songs on the same CD with her, as those singers of the "additional songs" did. It was truly a mistake.
This CD could have been filled with so many of her wonderful songs; les 3 cloches, les amants de Paris, mon legionnaire, le vieux piano, sous le ciel de Paris, etc, etc. To say the least, I am disappointed. There was not even a rendition of the La Vie en Rose in French!

The soundtrack to the movie by the same title is excellent. The restoration was superb. The voice of Edith Piaf is masterful.

3.0 out of 5 stars Piaf soars! 5 Aug 2007
By Buck Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Those who have seen Marion Cotillard's Oscar caliber performance in "La Vie En Rose" will love this disk for the eleven songs she lip-synched so brilliantly in the film--10 of them by Piaf. The old recordings were enhanced with modern technology to sound great. The soundtrack's underscoring tracks and other filler could easily have been deleted. Only the Piaf tracks found their way to my iPod.

4.0 out of 5 stars This CD is not a true sound track of the film. 10 Oct 2007
By Cate - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As wonderful as this CD is, especially the extraordinary remastering of old Piaf recordings, I was most disappointed that the captivating a capella performance of the Marseillaise (sung by Jil Aigrot?)by the child Edith on the street with her father, was not included. That was the first time in the film that the audience heard that wonderful, clear, melodious and powerful voice, and it was most believably the young Piaf. The film created such excellent voice and music continuity, that it deserves a traditional chronological sound track with proper notes and credits for each track. If the imported version is done in that way, it would be well worth pursuing.
