I didn't expect to learn anything about Celine Dion through watching this movie other than she's extremely rich, is nice to people, and has a child with no personality. While all that is true, what can be learned through watching this is just what drives Celine to continue her strenuous career. The most interesting part of the documentary is when Celine begins having vocal problems. She cancels some shows which lets down many of her fans. She recovers but the vocal problems return. Before one concert is about to begin, she tells her crew that she is having a hard time speaking. She is reluctant to go on with the show but does anyway. She manages to make it through but her voice sounds strained as she belts out "All By Myself." After the show, someone says to her "Well, it's over" and Celine replies "Yes but at what cost?" knowing that straining her voice in this manner could permanently damage her voice. Moments later you find out just why she went on with the show. She's confronted with a fan who says she was in ICU and thinking of Celine helped her want to live. It is moments like this that you see just how connected Celine is with her fans. And looking out in the audience during any of her concerts, you will see just how connected they are to her. Critics can say what they want, but Celine has touched the lives of millions of people around the world and this film shows the obligation she feels towards them to not let them down.
At the end of the movie, when the tour is over Celine is asked how long until she is performing again. She says a year and a half. I really wish she would reconsider that. She needs way more rest than that. Her fans are loyal and will wait however many years it takes. But Celine really needs to take an long break from performing these grueling schedules. Barbra Streisand's voice didn't start to fade until she was in her 60's. Celine's voice is already starting to weaken and she's only in her 40's. She really need to take care of it if she wants to have a career as long as Barbra's.
Celine really is one of the hardest working women in show business and she is one hell of a performer. Her concerts are high energy and women (and men) love watching her on stage. You would think her concerts would be filled with mostly women but looking at the footage in this documentary shows it's pretty evenly split among genders of who is a fan. And I really doubt all the guys are gay.
I also gotta say this documentary looks fantastic on BluRay.
