Edith Piaf's apartment
Édith Piaf (Marion Cotillard) lived at 67 boulevard Lannes in the 16th arrondissement for the last ten years of her life. She received her friends, her entourage and composers who came to present her with songs. She listened to Charles Dumont (Mario Hacquard) perform No Regrets whose music he composed to lyrics by Michel Vaucaire. He had just begun to hum that Edith was conquered. She’s happy, because those words are exactly her life. She knows in her heart that this song is her. It will become one of his favourite songs.
She sang No Regrets on stage at L’Olympia in 1961 and it was a triumph.
This is the number of hours spent in make-up per day for Marion Cotillard interpreting Édith Piaf âgée.
A small plaque in homage to La môme is affixed to the building on Boulevard Lannes.
67 Boulevard Lannes
The number 67 Lannes Boulevard welcomed Édith Piaf in the last years of her life.
This artery was named after the Marshal of France, Jean Lannes (1769-1809), whose other patronymic, Duke of Montebello, was also attributed to a port and wharf in Paris.
