Alliance Française French Film Festival 2021
Directed by Valérie Lemercier
It’s the 1980s and the music industry has a new star. A teenage girl from Quebec, Canada, has exploded onto the world stage to deliver stirring power-pop ballads with her once-in-a-lifetime singing voice, earning her millions of fans. Her name is Aline Dieu.
Inspired by the life, loves and legacy of real-life Quebecker singing sensation Céline Dion, Aline is bursting with music, drama and show-stopping performances that will sweep you off your feet. Following Aline’s evolution as a gifted child nurtured by her parents, to her early years being mentored by the producer who would one day also love her, to her global domination as a performer of breathtaking emotional intensity, this fictional biopic is a glorious tribute to the best-selling Canadian recording artist of all time.
Having previously directed, written and starred in Marie-Francine (AF FFF18), the multitalented Valérie Lemercier once more assumes all three duties, capitalising on her remarkable physical resemblance to Céline Dion to play Aline. As a self-proclaimed fan, Lemercier has ensured that other loyal members of Team Céline will give their hearts to Aline and their hearts will go on and on.
