Name change[edit]

This article should not be called La Vie en Rose. As the introductory sentence makes clear, this is just the American name for the movie. Wikipedia is not an American encyclopedia; it should not take as it's default the American names for movies when these differ from the names used elsewhere in the English-speaking world. BTW, I'm American, so this has nothing to do with nationalism or anti-Americanism. If it happens that La Vie en Rose is the name used around the world for releases in English-language areas, then the title is acceptable. If, however, it simply happens to be the name used in the USA or a handfull of other countries, the article should be redirect to La Môme. Interlingua talk email 14:45, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

I agree. I wonder if it perhaps confuses some people that both the original French title and the 'English language' title are both in French? Anyway, the article should be called La Mome and it should be a redirect from 'La Vie En Rose'. 15:59, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
I also agree. It weakens the integrity of this site to leave it the way it is, simply for the sake of ease. Lost kafei 21:51, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
I was wondering what a "môme" is ? Google translates it as 'walker'. -- (talk) 11:24, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

The name La vie en rose is very similar to the title of the film Ma vie en rose, which has a redirect to this film for those who are interested in the one about Edith Piaf. Shouldn't there also be a redirect at the top of THIS article to the other one about a transgender child? Disambiguation suggested.Anonnymos (talk) 07:22, 21 August 2013 (UTC)

In the movie it was usually translated as "the kid." Louis Leplée nicknamed her "La Môme Piaf," or kid sparrow (due to her short stature). And, by the way, I agree that the article should be moved to "La Môme (film)" and this page should be redirected to it. Hashashin (talk) 06:26, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
The title in the UK was also La Vie en Rose, not La Môme. I can't speak for any other countries, but I have the British releases of the DVD and CD, and they are clearly labelled La Vie en Rose. If the standard Wikipedia policy is to use English-language titles, the article should presumably stay as it is. Thorf (talk) 08:17, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

This article took its plot summary directly from the trailer[edit]

This plot summary is just an ad.

I have substituted it with a very sketchy and brief plot summary, just to get rid of the paragraph which, as you pointed out, is lifted directly from an advert, and of little substance. It is quite a hard movie to give a plot summary of given the nature of its narrative, which jumps about all over the place. I would be glad for anyone to try and flesh it out a bit if need be. 15:56, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Lavie finalkeyart.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Lavie finalkeyart.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Amy Winehouse?[edit]

There is a part in the film, the scene after Louis Leplee invite Piaf to audition in his cabaret on the street and before Albert extorts money from Piaf, where a performer who looks an awful lot like Amy Winehouse sings a song. Can anyone clear this up? Does Mrs. Winehouse have a cameo role in the film and what was the song that was sung?

- (talk) 11:32, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

UPDATE: The song is apparently called "Fascination" and sung by Maya Barsony. Does anyone know the name of the actor? (talk) 08:35, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

UPDATE: The actor is Maya Barsony. Not Amy Winehouse. Both performers look similar. (talk) 08:46, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Capital R in Rose in the title[edit]

Any reason why this isn't called "La Vie en Rose (film)"? That's how it's referred to everywhere else in the article. -- JackofOz (talk) 00:21, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

The question is whether an English work of art with a French-language title should follow the capitalization rules of English or of French. The same issue arises at Talk:C'est la Vie (radio). I raised this point at Wikipedia:Help desk/Archives/2010 June 27#MOS guidance wanted - capitalization for title of English work with French title. Mathew5000 (talk) 22:07, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Her daughter[edit]

I may have heard that Edith Piaf had a daughter by the name of Marcelle. I can not remember Marcelle being mentioned in the film. Any one with more info? ( (talk) 20:23, 24 May 2010 (UTC))

Film's nationality[edit]

This film, in the past few months,
has gone from being France French, Czech Republic Czech, and United Kingdom British,
to being France and Canada Canadian.
No references before, and none now.
I'm Canadian; we usually know which movies are ours. I don't recall any such comment in regards to this one.
What should this actually be?
