The song 'I Feel Too Much' was used when she hadn't recorded it yet. It was on her 'Unison' album, released in 1990. In the movie they play it when she's 18. But, at 18, she had just returned from her break, and had recorded new edgier songs in French with Luc Plamondon's help. See more »

Celine Dion is French Canadian
23 May 2010 | by c-madgeSee all my reviews

What a disappointment this movie was. The casting was terrible! There was absolutely no resemblance of the characters to the people they were portraying. Where on earth was the French Canadian connection? Not one accent? We all know where Celine was born and raised and yet her entire heritage was completely missing. It made no sense whatsoever to cast the movie in a way that did not recognize her background. I can understand that whoever backed this movie may have been concerned about too much French Canadian or too much emphasis on the Francophone accent but let's face it, without it the movie bombed anyway.It was a sham. I'm not criticizing the acting - each person would likely be fine in any other roles. I particularly liked Enrico Colantoni as Rene. I'm not surprised the movie wasn't endorsed by Celine Dion. The producers and the director, the casting company were so far off the mark. The time line was off throughout the movie as well. I don't have an ounce of Francophone in me and it made me feel embarrassed for Celine and her family.
