L'odyssée d'Alice Tremblay

Directed by Denise Filiatrault
Canada, 2002 (fiction, 101 minutes, colour, French)
Also known as "Alice's Odyssey", "Il était des fois"

Film Description:
"Single mother to a five-year-old girl, Alice works in a refinery in Montréal's east end. One evening, while telling her daughter a bed-time story, Alice is thrown into the world of the fairy tales she is reading. There, she meets Ludovic, a prince who repeatedly fails his 'awaking the princess with a kiss' exam—a skill required of all prince charmings worthy of the name. Believing that Alice can help him perfect his kissing technique, Ludovic offers, in turn, to help her get back home. The fairy-tale world is turned upside down by Alice's unusual presence. Is Little Red Riding Hood actually in love with the Wolf? Is Cinderella really as pure and innocent as they say? Is Prince William as charming as all that? And what's this about Snow White—does she really live with seven men?"
