"La Vie En Rose" ,in spite of its title ,has nothing to do with Edith Piaf.Released the same year as "The secret life of Walter Mitty" ,it may be considered its French counterpart,but not nearly as good.Actually it was probably inspired by previous experiments of very underrated Albert Valentin: a story told by two different characters ,one after the other;first the would be womanizer (a supervisor in a secondary school),then one of the students.The trick was already used in Valentin's "La Vie De Plaisir" ,with superior results.Main interest lies in the actors' performances,Louis Salou and François Périer.Nothing extraordinary in Jeanson's lines,but the diary is a good idea.
