    If you are expecting to see Celine Dion perform her hits on this film, then DO NOT buy it: IT IS A BACKSTAGE/TOUR DOCUMENTARY, NOT A CONCERT (That is why the Taking Chances World Tour: The Concert (DVD/CD) is being released on the same day.) This doc follows Celine, husband, child, and other relatives on the family journey that turned out to be the Taking Chances World Tour, officially the 2nd highest grossing tour of all time by a female artist . We see Celine prepping to go onstage, her and her family sightseeing at each tour stop (visiting Nelson Mandela’s cell; going on a safari), and her receiving the ‘Légion d’honneur’ Medal from French President Nicolas Sarkozy. Through film, one experiences the REAL Celine, which is the same Celine we see onstage: true, kind, and sensitive. We see her laugh, and at certain moments, cry, such as when she was forced to postpone several tour dates due to a throat infection, and again when her son, RC, thinks he has lost a childhood toy, which later turns up at a hotel. On instances, we do see Celine performing some songs, but only snippets; most of the song is used as background/transition music from scene to scene. The DVD has an extra hour of added footage- maybe there’ll be more music during it, but the main film hasn’t too much.

    This film is a MUST for every Celine fan. It could have certainly been used as a bonus DVD with the concert film, but seeing as that has an audio CD, it was a nice alternative. Still, $10.99 is a steal of a price.

    I live in Durban South Africa and remember when Celine came to open her Taking Changes Tour”, bought the ticket and watched the show, she blew me away.This woman is probably the most amazing female vocalist walking the planet today. Not only that she wears her heart on her sleeve, so loving, so expressive, so funny, full of life and love. You will see that in this documentary without a doubt, her love for her family, her son, her fans is so clear. Not to be biased but the opening section her in “South Africa” is the best and most touching of them all, I was so proud to watch this, SA is finally getting worldwide recognition with the successful Soccer World Cup 2010 and celebrites like Celine gracing our country. This DVD is amazing and the performance sections will blow you away, I also bought the concert too which was wonderful of course but stll the documentary I enjoyed so much more. because I got to trully know Celine and fell inlove with her not the artist but the person.

    Celine – as you’ve never seen her before., November 5, 2011

    Celine Dion – who doesn’t know her name by now? Who doesn’t know her voice? Who doesn’t know the extremely ubiquitous Titanic theme song? Celine has been the hardest-working woman in show business for the past 30 years, and now we get a sneak peek at her life on the road during her blockbuster Taking Chances World Tour, and boy, is it every Celine fan’s dream. Concert performances are intermingled with backstage footage, downtime with family, birthday parties, doctor visits, the whole works.

    “Through The Eyes Of The World” offers viewers a glimpse at Celine – unscripted. Her warmth and genuine affection for others shines through, as does the fact that the woman is quite goofy and crazy at times – in a very good way, one that allows viewers to relate to her.

    This is not a film for those who absolutely detest Celine – it won’t change your mind about her as a person or as a vocalist/performer. If you’re neutral or lukewarm, it might be worth a look. But mostly, it’s for those of us who are die-hard fans and want to see more of Celine. This film is even heavy on concert performances for us big time fans who love seeing Celine do what she does best.

    The DVD has no extras – none are necessary, especially since the home video release of the film is roughly an hour longer than the theatrically released version. It’s presented in 16:9 anamorphic widescreen and the picture is flawless, as expected for a recent production shot in high definition. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 and 5.1 and does the job splendidly. My only miff, despite not having a Blu-Ray player, is that this has a Blu-Ray disc while the concert does not. Why is that? Did Sony not think folks would want the full concert in hi-def too?

    “Celine: Through The Eyes Of The World” is worth every cent if you’re a Celine fan. Pristine picture and sound, which definitely becomes important during the concert performances, and plenty of reminders of why us die-hard Celine fans love her. Yes, the chart stats, sales numbers, awards, ticket sales, etc. are impressive, but the film shows Celine’s personality, work ethic, and fantastic talent – the real reason that she remains a beloved entertainer three decades after her first single in Quebec. Brava, Mme. Dion.
