Upset, moved, troubled, speechless: Céline Dion’s admirers are not about to recover from watching the documentary I am: Celine Dion dropped today on Prime Video.

Marc-André Vigneault, 36, has been a fan of Celine Dion since he was little. He went to watch the documentary I am: Celine Dion Sunday evening at the cinema and did it again at home Tuesday, early in the morning.

“I was dreading this documentary. I knew it would be difficult for me. It hurt me and a lot of pain, and it still does. It’s a whole life lesson that you’re watching,” explains the Montrealer with emotion.

Like many admirers, Marc-André Vigneault would like to gently take the singer in his arms after seeing her suffer like this on screen. Tell her to take all the time she needs to get back on her feet too, and that the public will always be there for her.

Even if the great admirer who knows almost everything about the life of his idol admits to being a little unsatisfied, he recommends the public to watch this documentary, “if only to understand what the person’s illness is. steep.”

“I will always encourage people to discover the human being behind the star. To see the strength, the positive, the resilience, the guts and work, beyond talent. I have deep respect for her. This documentary is a lesson in courage,” continues the man who says he is still inhabited by the images of Céline suffering and in crisis.

Céline, courageous woman

Originally from Avignon, France, Tanguy Monceau fell under the spell of Céline Dion in 1999 during her concert at the Stade de France.

The 36-year-old nurse watched the documentary I am: Celine Dion with around thirty friends who are admirers of the Quebec singer.

What struck him most after viewing? The silence. Because everyone needed half an hour to regain their senses and regain their speech.

“We were all very touched, moved, shocked and stunned by what had just happened. We all cried and had a hard time talking about it among ourselves afterwards. We still think about it a lot. It’s gut-wrenching,” explains the fan, who had the chance to meet Céline in Paris in 2016.

The spasm attack scene was very difficult for him to watch, just like the one where Céline can’t sing one of her new songs in the studio.

“It’s a very difficult scene, very touching, but also very strong. We see how courageous she is. I am still very upset to have seen her in this state,” he adds, emphasizing the original and frank side of this film which is intended to reflect the image of Celine Dion.

“We really find the Céline we love. Simple, no makeup, no hair. A star who shows himself courageously, in his vulnerability. We cannot come out of this documentary without loving it even more,” he breathes.
