Goofs

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 »

Impressiuons of CELINE
16 September 2008 | by jpeverillSee all my reviews

This film is a disaster, especially if you are a true fan of Celine. Virtually none of the people presented really look like their real-life counterparts. The Dion family is almost completely misrepresented. The mother looks like an upper-middle class suburbanite. Most distressing are the vocal renditions, not only missing the mark in duplicating what was actually there, but doing it in a way that is hardly worthy of comparison to the original, both as a little girl and as a star. I hope they paid Celine plenty for this joke. It will serve her poorly as a memento. I especially disliked the songs done as a teenager. Some of them are exceptional, but not these. Unfortunately, this may keep people from going back and actually listening to the originals, which were great. Finally, her French is almost completely overlooked. Most of her early songs especially were in French. She didn't even know any English until she was about 14/15. Her Anglo-style persona just isn't her!
