Fidelio, l’odyssée d’Alice

Fidelio, l’odyssée d’Alice



Lucie Borleteau, director

“I drew the inspiration to shoot Fidelio by a close friend of mine, it is taken from reality, though. I wanted to make a portray of her and seeing a woman doing the work of a man, maintaining her femininity.”

“I asked myself the question: does a woman need to have a man in each port?”

“It was important to me to shoot this film with someone who’s turning thirty, the age when a woman focus on her life, a woman at the dawn of her adulthood.”

Ariane Labed, actress

“I started thinking to do cinema after the award in Venice; at the moment I am reading scripts, doing a Belgian film, being open to what may come.”
