      Audience Member well...The film is not verry good but Pascale Bussière have so much talent... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Learnt a lot about Alice Robby Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Pas un mauvais film en tant que tel mais la structure déchrée entre sa vie en asile et sa vie de star rend le film inégal. De plus, l'acteur qui faisait Olivier Guimond (dont le nom m'échappe) était particulierement nul... Néanmoins, Pascale Bussieres reste toujours aussi excellente, plus particulierement quand les folies maniaco-dépressives d'Alys Roby commencent. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Intense true story of Alys Robi Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Pascal buissiere est exellente dans ce film sur la vie d'Alys Robi Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member A pretty average biopic on a wartime celebrity who went from child stardom in Quebec to becoming an international sensation, only to have it all collapse from a long-ignored mental illness (Comparisons to Britney Spears aren't too far off). This film, however, omits a dramatically significant portion of her life - after 1952, Alys Robi returned to the stage, but couldn't find financers because it was believed that she was crazy, even though she'd been lobotomized (And without the frightful side effects, I might add). This would have provided a far more interesting end to the story then what we were given. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
