“Aline”, event film freely inspired by the life of Celine Dion, is finally released on the big screen this Wednesday after a postponement of more than a year. How did Valérie Lemercier transform for the film? What were the challenges? Meet.
Quebec, late 1960s, Sylvette and Anglomard welcome their 14th child: Aline. In the Dieu family, music reigns supreme and when Aline grows up we discover a gift to her, she has a golden voice. When he hears this voice, music producer Guy-Claude has only one idea in mind… to make Aline the greatest singer in the world. Supported by her family and guided by the experience and then the budding love of Guy-Claude, they will together write the pages of an extraordinary destiny …
Long-awaited, Aline, an event film by Valérie Lemercier, finally arrives in theaters. The actress, screenwriter and director takes up a crazy gamble: imagine a “fantasized” biopic of Celine Dion, at the same time funny, tender and always respectful of the world star of the song.
We met Valérie Lemercier who confides in the challenges met to achieve this comedy.
