“Aline” is shaping up to be a hit.

The unauthorized Celine Dion-inspired biopic premiered Tuesday night to a five-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival, Variety executive editor Ramin Setoodeh shared on Twitter.

The film stars director Valérie Lemercier, whom Setoodeh described as the Kristen Wiig of France, as a singer who comes to prominence very young, and much like the real-life Dion, romances her much older manager.

In the film, Lemercier, who is 57, plays the character of Aline at every point in her life, including when she is just 12 years old.
