Movie Info

Lucie Borleteau makes her feature directing debut with this insightful study of a woman situated in an almost exclusively male milieu. Sailor Alice (Ariane Labed) joins the freighter Fidelio as a replacement engineer, soon discovering that the captain, Gaël (Melvil Poupaud), is a man with whom she was once romantically involved. Though she leaves behind a fiancé on land (Anders Danielsen Lie, Oslo, August 31st), she finds her feelings for Gaël have not abated. Buttressed by a remarkable international cast, Fidelio: Alice's Odyssey presents a rounded portrait of a passionate woman faced with difficult choices. Greek actress Labed won Best Actress at Locarno for her memorable performance. Fidelio was nominated for two César Awards including Best Debut Feature. (C) First Run

  • Built four-square around Ariane Labed's engaging turn as eponymous sailor Alice, this feature debut from actress-turned-writer-director Lucie Borleteau strikes a delicate balance between the sensual and the matter-of-fact.

  • Easily the most fascinating film to come along and challenge traditional gender roles in the past year.

  • The explosions are subtler than you might expect, and Lebed is superb in the role.

    Times (UK)
    Top Critic
  • This sensible, sensual and slow burning romance is like an Emmanuaelle stripped of all its lurid passion, leaving little but cold intellectualising about desire, sex and the nature of long-term coupling.

    Oct 1, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The whole thing is contrived and just a little preposterous ...

    Oct 1, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A remarkably assured first feature.
