Edith Piaf's Primal Singing

Emotional wrenching is evident in the new French film about French street/cabaret singer, Edith Piaf. The life of this 'force of nature' street urchin is born into tragic sadness and it also ends this way. Through it all, though, Piaf is sustained and comforted by a confidence and the personal self-worth she finds in her singing, naively comprehending life's call to give of love and be fulfilled by it. This simple, yet palpable, realization is Piaf's survival, during her short life.
Fortunate for Piaf is that she 'got' life's primal message, profoundly, and fortunate for us is that we 'get' Piaf's profundity!
