Aline, the biopic retracing the life and career of Celine Dion will soon be released in theaters. A film paying homage to one of the greatest singers in the world, originally from Quebec.

Aline retraces the life of the international star from Quebec, Céline Dion. “It’s an extraordinary fate”, says Valérie Lemercier, who plays the main role in the film. A daring role, but a bet attempted by Valérie Lemercier, who interprets and tells the life of one of the greatest singers in the world. Director of the film, Valérie Lemercier has learned a lot about the books and documentaries about the singer from Quebec. “A fan biopic”, according to Danielle Fichaud, actress.

It seems impossible to tell the story of Celine Dion without linking it to that of her husband and producer René, who live an imposed love, against the will of their loved ones. “They loved each other and conquered the planet, that’s what she wanted to show”, adds Sylvain Marcel, who plays the role of René. According to him, there would have been a lack of perspective in Quebec on this point. In the movie, it’s Victoria Sio, a professional singer who sings the voice of Celine Dion, divers songs addressed by Aline, representing Celine Dion, to her relatives, for two hours.
