A very strong film

The whole film took me into a carousel of emotions: anger, longing for the mother, the sense of betrayal. Marie (Vanessa Paradis took me by surprise in a swirl. Gerard Depardieu is a great actor who's not afraid to try all sorts of roles, only they show the true human nature. This film moved me. very deep and although I did not have much of respect for Vanessa, in this film she proved herself to be a good actress. I got very moved by two songs and I've been surfing on the film site and others in order to find them. I just saw the film recently on YV and did not have the time to register the title and the artists. The first song is showing for a very short while 2 musicians and a little girl in the metro, starting to sing a wonderful (Romenian?)song. The second is when Depardieu is on the beach, at night, drinking down his pain, while the music is crying on the tape-recorder he brought with him. An italian song, I should think. Please, help me to find the right songs and their interpreters. you'll make me very happy. I was so moved. I'd love to know if the music is on Cd or if the artists have their respective CD

Friendly greetings from Claudine
