Pretty Woman has a happy ending. The story sung by Edith Piaf finishes differently.
The story of a woman blackened by sin, smelling of cheap vices, but with something special in her eyes that can turn dirty skies blue.
The prince charming calls her beautiful; These are not words that are spoken to the women of the neighbourhood. They move her to confess her past; He tells her to leave it behind.
They paint the town red but the scene brings out painful memories. They move to a better part of the city.
She’s reborn, he changes. “I thought you were prettier, but by the light of day, your vices show.”
She returns to her streets, her dreams of a saviour gone but when she sees lovers, a tear escapes her blue eyes.
Which moves you more? The Richard Gere / Julia Roberts story or the French version?
