MAINTENANCE – Céline Dion, Quebec, her family, her professional daily life… The actress and director knows how to look at her thirty-year career with lucidity. Relaxed meeting on the occasion of the release of his new film.
TOline Should have been released on November 11 … 2020. The second wave of Covid postponed by one year the feature film by Valérie Lemercier, coveted by SVOD platforms and finally in theaters this Wednesday. A postponement which allowed the film to appear in the official selection at the Cannes Film Festival (out of competition).
LE FIGARO. – Celine Dion has she seen Aline ultimately?
Valérie LEMERCIER. – No, I do not think so. I have been sending signals for two years. I’m saying if she wants to see the movie, it’s where she wants and when she wants. I hope she sees it before I die. But I understand her. I would be her, I wouldn’t rush. He is someone who is moving forward, not sure that a retrospective of his life so young interests him. And I think she doesn’t know who I am. She only sees American films, and I don’t capture my shows. For Quebecers, I am at best the dentist’s wife in Visitors. But relatives of René saw him and said he would have loved it.
