It is the chicest modern take on the American dream: classic French beauty turned charismatic French icon on the silver screen and Oscar-winner in the space of a few months.
Marion Cotillard deserves all the hype, and all the success; by leaving the usual glamour aside to embody the borderline grotesque-looking French icon Edith Piaf, she became the new French sweetheart and a refreshing Oscar winner, all raw emotions and fishscale dress (*that* dress).
These days Marion has every reason to keep on dreaming: last year was a good one, what with Nine and Public Enemies and 2010 should be no different with a Christopher Nolmn filù (alongside Leonardo Di Caprio no less); Inception, due to be released over the summer.
Marion may not appear in the trailer (all the more mystery saved for later) but we couldn't resist sharing.
