Born in Paris, Edith Piaf is brought up in a poor environment by a family with an artistic background. She reveals her singing skills when she begins singing in the streets with her father as a child before being remarked in 1935 by Louis Leplée, the owner of a cabaret who engages her and becomes her mentor. When Raymond Asso takes over « La Môme Piaf »'s career, she becomes a celebrated music hall artist and she soon appears in various stage productions and films. During World War II, Edith Piaf leads an amphibious relationship with the occupying forces: singing songs with hidden messages while performing in Berlin in 1943 and residing in a brothel mainly visited by Nazi officers. However, she is saved at the Liberation by her secretary who testifies that the singer helped French prisoners escape from Germany. From the end of the 1940s, she is an international star and the interpreter of major hits such as Les Trois Cloches, La Vie en rose and L'Hymne à l'Amour while she reveals to the public many talents (and lovers): Yves Montand, Charles Aznavour, Georges Moustaki... . Yet despite the fame, Edith Piaf is a tortured soul, addicted to alcohol and morphine that heal her physical pains and her broken heart since the love of her life, the boxer Marcel Cerdan has died in a plane crash, in 1949. Ruined by the sufferings of her existence, the singer with the little black dress died in 1963, hours before her friend, Jean Cocteau. She regained a new modern aura thanks to Marion Cotillard’s Oscar-rewarded performance in the 2007 movie La Vie en rose.
