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

Even before a snake infiltrates the ship, Borleteau's metaphors aren't subtle, but shes persuasive on the tensions between desire, devotion and duty, and Alice's yearnings rise to the surface with frank complexity.

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

Sending a woman around the world to find her anchor may be a nice concept to begin with, but the script of... Fidelio - Alice's Journey lacks the necessary structure to sustain it all through or lead it securely into safe harbour.

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.
