    Litterally it is french for "that is life" or "it is life" and it is used as an idiomatic expression that means life is harsh but one must accept it (an elegant way of saying sh*t happens).

    Literally speaking, it's "that's life".

    However, usually, it means "such is life" (= we cannot do anything about it).
