Documentary Review: I AM CELINE DION


Documentary Review: I AM CELINE DION


Rating: 10/10


Joy: You are not ready for the depth of vulnerability this documentary explores. Celine shares with the world her least confident and glamorous moments – dealing with a neurological disorder and losing the strength of her voice.


Celine loves music. It’s her entire reason for being, and it shows in this documentary.


Irene Taylor is a brilliant director. The beauty of this documentary rests on her shoulder, and she delivers! Of course, Celine is an incredible musician and has a moving story to tell, so the applause goes to both of them.


It is a powerful documentation of the life of a woman losing the most precious gift she has – her voice.


With up to 250 million record sales worldwide, multiple awards, and a very successful career spanning four decades with a net worth of $800m, Celine has a lot to be thankful for. But it hasn’t always been rosy as she reveals her struggle to keep her voice started 17 years ago.


The documentary addresses this in the kindest way. Singing is all she’s ever known, and as long as she’s alive, she’s always going to miss the power of that voice.


It was, after all, the voice that brought her to the limelight, so making this documentary is a gift to her fans.


Truth be told, “I Am Celine Dion” is not just for fans, it is for everyone. If you have the capacity to comprehend and be compassionate, you will find pieces of her story that connect to your humanity. We all can relate to some kind of loss.


Celine may not be able to sing like she used to, but this documentary makes good use of her voice by sharing her struggles, which, I would say, is just as powerful as her singing.


It’s in the simplicity of her life story. “I Am Celine Dion” is deeply emotional, heartbreaking, yet inspiring.


The last 15 minutes of the documentary was hard to watch. To share her most vulnerable moments of a health crisis with the entire world is brave.


May she find healing and comfort.


Directed by: Irene Taylor
