#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Thirty-year-old Alice’s occupation is rather unusual for a woman: she works as an engineer on a freighter. She loves her job and does it competently but even in a greasy blue overall a woman will be a woman, with her heart, her desires and her seduction – In such conditions can an all-male crew really remain totally insensitive to her charms? A situation all the more complicated as not only does Alice leave her fiancé Felix behind but she also discovers on board the Fidélio that the captain is Gaël, her first love.
Plot: Alice is a sailor. While her partner Félix waits for her on land, she sets off as second mechanic on the Fidelio, an old freighter. On board, she discovers not only that her predecessor has just died, but also that the skipper is none other than the first great love of her life. Alice finds a notebook in her cabin, apparently that of the former mechanic, and on reading its contents – accounts of mechanical problems, sexual conquests and lovelorn emotions – finds, oddly, that they mirror her own concerns. As they make stops at various ports, dealing with life aboard alongside an all-male crew and the swell and pitch of her romantic feelings, the young woman tries to stay on course.

.. the mind of a male
..a woman playing the mind of a male… we’re not totally sure till the very end.. then the look and the smiles…
.. it’s a film cannot be watched just once.. especially since you’re reading subtitles and jumping back to watch..
… the flow being chopped up every few seconds, so more gets filled in once knowing the dialogue, then being able to more easily watch..
..the actors and performances keep it together.. yet don’t go beyond.. ..how many times you watch it, and the rating you give it, are probably both to change..
A character study at sea
The opening shot of “Fidelio: Alice’s Journey” has lead actress Ariane Labed skinny-dipping. Get used to it; it’s far from the last time you’ll see her naked form in this French film. Indeed, for a production with only one major female role as against several male roles, it is noticeable that there is much, much more female nudity than male.
Alice (Labed) is an engineer who, upon getting a job aboard the freighter ‘Fidelio’, is dismayed to discover its captain Gaël (Melvil Poupaud) is an old flame. This might make the view expect a bit of a relationship pot-boiler, but actually the “will-they-won’t-they” business is dealt with pretty quickly. The film also resists the temptation to descend into tiresome “woman in a man’s world who has to prove herself to the boorish men” territory; Alice is accepted into the Fidelio’s crew with little comment about her gender and – a half-hearted attempt at molestation aside – it’s of little direct importance to the storyline. Instead the film follows the day-to-day goings-on of Alice’s life on board: there is a bit of business with a dead crewman’s diary, but on the whole the film is an interesting character study of a flawed but likable central character.
As for the acting, Greek-born Labed brings a traditional French gamine quality to the central role, well-served by a wardrobe that allows Alice to be understatedly feminine as well as one of the boys. As Gaël, Poupaud is merely there: the role doesn’t offer him much in which to sink his teeth, but I’ve never found him the most expressive of actors anyway. Anders Danielsen Lie, as Alice’s artist boyfriend, could perhaps have made more of his role: instead he comes across as dull, boring and slightly bewildered, leading the viewer to understand just why Alice wants to spend most of her time at sea…
