From Okia Cinema:

Continuing the success of French Love Film Week with many requests from the audience for more romantic French Movie, this week Okia Cinema organize the screenings for two very famous, romantic and exciting French movies: La Vie en Rose and Amélie.

La vie en rose is a classic in France as well as in the world due to many reasons. One of the most important ones is that the movie is about the vivacious, realistic yet exciting and inspiring life of the French legend Édith Piaf. In contrast to the movie’s name – that of one of the most famous songs in world music history – La vie en rose, Édith Piaf’s life is anything but ‘sweet’.

Hers is of passion & love’s red, of loneliness’ blue, of grief’s grey, black, purple… or anything you could imagine except for the sweet, dreamy pink.

Édith Piaf – the diva who put everything she is into her music and love, sacrificed herself for a thing bigger than any of us could understand.

Marion Cotillard – the French muse has put her every effort into this role, making it a triumph.

“La vie en rose” will bring you to tears – tears of understanding, of deep admiration & love. And after all, much like a cup of tea, you will find a rose blooming, somewhere in your heart.

Watch the trailer:

Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amelie Poulain – The Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain is exactly what is called. A sweet poem of love, kindness and innocence, a cheerful yet gentle melody of a love song.

Amélie Poulain’s life is a milestone for French cinema – for its romance, passion, kindness, beauty, magic. What an exciting movie – down-to-earth yet dreamy, simple yet magical.

The fairy-tale-like Amélie showed a new side of the French muse Audrey Tatou. You cannot mention her without thinking of Amélie, and to mention Amélie is to talk about the beautiful life.

After watching this movie, anyone who dreams of French will naturally think about the wide-eyed, dimple-cheeked girl that lightened up the whole Paris.

“Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amelie Poulain” will fill your heart will the love for life.
