The film Aline , which is freely inspired by the life of Celine Dion, will be screened in Quebec on November 27, just 9 days after its French release.
This eagerly awaited new feature film by French director and actress Valérie Lemercier ( The Visitors ) will also have its Quebec premiere on November 5, during the opening night of the Montreal Cinemania festival.
An Aline trailer was also unveiled on Friday morning. In the film, Valérie Lemercier plays a certain Aline Dieu, a fictional character greatly inspired by Celine Dion. The 2-minute 11 trailer is also punctuated by excerpts from three songs by the Quebec diva: I'm Alive, Pour que tu m'aime encore and Let's Talk About Love .
Quebecer Sylvain Marcel lends his features to the character of Aline's impresario (the resemblance to René Angélil is striking) while Roc Lafortune and Danielle Fichaud play the singer's parents.
The first images of the film, which had been unveiled a few weeks ago, had already greatly reacted to fans of the diva in Quebec.
Aline , which was shot in Montreal, Paris and Las Vegas, was co-produced by the Quebec box Caramel Films ( Starbuck, La Bolduc ).
