Cinema releases on November 10: is Aline the best film of the week?

To help you make your choices, here are the 3 best rated films of the week by the press and viewers on AlloCiné! *


1st: Aline – 4.1 / 5

“For her sixth feature film, Valérie Lemercier is transformed into Celine Dion in a tasty playful biopic with a Quebec accent. The fairy tale of the star with 240 million records sold around the world has the tunes of an ode to love.” By Nathalie Chifflet (Latest News from Alsace)

“With great admiration in tone and daring in form, Valérie Lemercier slips into the life and dresses of Céline Dion to tell, with a few liberties but without ever making fun, her love affair with the man who made her grow as a woman and as an artist. ” By Barbara Théate (Le Journal du Dimanche)

2nd: A crazy life – 3.4 / 5

“The bias of the whimsical breathing and the funny tone (very Belgian) would not work without such agile writing qualities, close to that of the sitcom.” By Sandra Onana (Liberation)

“The staging, dominated by still shots interspersed with jump cuts (a bias linked to the improvisational part granted to the actors) borders on systematism, but the fragmentation that it imprints on the story, breaking with linearity, captures an intensity of the moment. ” By Valentine Guégan (Cahiers du Cinéma)

3rd: The Goddess of fire flies – 3.3 / 5

“The success of this Quebecois and grunge – but never creepy – version of” L’Effrontée “owes a lot to the slender and feverish playing intelligence of young Kelly Depeault.” By Samuel Loutaty (BIBA)

“The goddess of fire flies also succeeds by her treatment both poetic and believed to weave a particularly cathartic testimony on this revolt that is adolescence” By Ludovic Béot (Les Inrockuptibles)


1st tie: A Mad Life – 3.8 / 5

“Very nice movie. We laugh as much as we cry. Nice surprise for the actors I didn’t know.” By Yaga

“The varied visual registers, the scenes full of finesse and humor carried by excellent actors, make this film a good breath of fresh air. The mother is unforgettable but the son, the daughter-in-law, and the sick nurse come to serve her a beautiful plateau. In short, not to be missed! ” By Félix Demargne

1st tie: Aline – 3.8 / 5

“Beautifully funny, caustic while being an incredible tribute to the Quebec star. I’m not a fan of Celine at all, but Aline strangely reconciled me with her. Bravo Valérie!” By David82

“Whether you are a fan of Celine Dion or not, this film takes us into her world. Valérie Lemercier is perfect in her role, with humor and emotion. Really not disappointed.” By Alexi O

3rd: Tre Piani – 3.6 / 5

“Tre Piani is a cleverly written and dialogue film, with an Italian 5-star cast and certainly classic but effective (and carried by a beautiful photo). In short, the best of Italian cinema is probably summed up in this film !” By Simon R

“Twenty years after his Palme d’Or” La Chambre du fils “, Moretti offers us a panoply of emotions played wonderfully by a flawless cast.” By Cinéphiles 44
