At age 13 she left alone to conquer the big city, Montreal, under the name Alys Robi. She first worked at the National Theatre with "La Poune" who takes her under her wing and then joined the cast of John Grimaldi. She met Olivier Guimond, her first love. Ambitious, she leaves to live a professional and romantic relationship with Lucio Asgotini who will eventually break her heart. Alys Robi charm a whole generation with her Latin rhythms such as "Tico Tico" and "Besame Mucho". She has conquered the world and Hollywood where MGM's desire and the American press call her a "Goddess". Alys Robi embodies the American dream, a story of triumph, glory, love, but also a story ...

Homage to Pascale Bussières
5 January 2005 | by (Trois-Rivières, Québec , Canada) – See all my reviews

Bravo!! for the beautiful play of Pascale Bussières. For me, when she arrived on the screen, I had goose-flesh on my arms and soon after, tears of emotion in my eyes caused by the great quality of her interpretation. She will merit largely a Jutra prize for that performance. Not surprising, when we consider the international experience as actress of that beautiful young woman. The pure masterpiece of an actress on the large screen!!! Encore Bravo!!!

It's also necessary to say good words about the wonderful text and direction of Denise Filiatrault, who has a long experience of the show-business, as actress and as director of comedy on the TV and on the large screens. But what is adding a great value to that film, "Ma Vie en Cinemascope", is the fact that Denise Filiatrault has personally known Alys Robi by playing with her on the same stages as a young singer in her debut. More, she had Alys Robi besides her on the stage during the making of the film. It reveals a great honesty in saying the truth of what was the life and the suffering of that great artist who was Alys Robi.
