that funny little character who traisped around montmartre with piaf in 'la vie en rose' was played by sylvie testud. as 'mômone', piaf's half sister, she was protective, tipsy, supportive, and ultimately fed up. sylvie brought as much life to her role as marion did to hers.
since that incredible film she has done 14 more, including the portrayal of france's most beloved writer francoise sagan. apparently great casting follows her around.
