This biopic of the life of Edith Piaf is visually delightful, and the music is of course sublime. But the story itself was a shambles. The back and forth of it seems to have been done purposely to keep you off guard, but just ends up making it a muddled mess. Characters come and go, and you could care less. Ms. Piaf seems to have been fairly unlikeable, and I applaud the way they do not shy away from this fact. However, with such a lead and these pop-up and disappearing characters I had trouble keeping my mind on the movie. She begins dying very shortly into the movie, and with all the flashbacks and forths, I became annoyed and was constantly going online to look up biographical facts so I could figure out what was going on. And don't even get me started on how distracting her eyebrows were!
