    This is the Edith Piaf biopic that was in the cinemas in 2007 under the title of La Vie En Rose. Loved it when I saw it last year, so have been searching in vain on French websites for it on HD DVD under that title. But as it turns out in France it is known as La Mome.

    Not only available on HD DVD as a two disc set, but also in a very lavish box set with a CD, calendar, 144 page illustrated book and sheet music (see pics - second pic for size comparison purposes). Think I'll be having a punt. :)

    The HD DVD arrived today. Record delivery time from a French Amazon Marketplace dealer!

    Absolutely superb AV quality with a choice of DTS MA and True HD tracks. This easily aced the appalling AV quality when I saw it at the Manchester Cornerhouse (great films, lousy equipment), and it was a thrill to see it in all its glory for the first time.

    A terrific movie. Marion Cotillard is outstanding. She virtually channels Piaf.
