THE SUNDAY FILM

While writing the screenplay for The kid, the director Olivier Dahan immediately thinks of Marion Cotillard for the title role, unlike the producers, who plan to hire Audrey Tautou. Finally selected, Marion Cotillard invests body and soul in her incarnation of the legend Edith Piaf. She embarks on a deep documentation, as well as an incredible physical transformation. His entire nights are devoted to meticulous technical work to restore Piaf’s way of singing and body language to the screen on stage during the playback sequences. Despite a grueling filming and difficulties in getting rid of her character once it is over, Marion Cotillard begins a major turning point in her career as she successively wins the BAFTA, the César and the Oscar for Best Actress for her performance. .
