Mars et Avril is a Canadian science fiction film....based on the graphic novels of the same name.... Almost entirely shot on green screen, this independent film has a significant amount of visual effects.... The World premiere took place on July 2nd, 2012, at the 47th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, Czech Republic (the film was selected in the section “Another View” for its unique artistic approach). Mars et Avril is scheduled to open in theaters in October 2012.Adapted from two acclaimed graphic novels, Mars et Avril is set in a futuristic Montreal, where humanity is about to set foot on Mars. Jacob Obus (Jacques Languirand), a charismatic musician, takes pride in slowing down time by playing instruments inspired by women’s bodies, designed by his friend, Arthur (Paul Ahmarani). A love triangle develops when Jacob and Arthur both fall in love with Avril (Caroline Dhavernas), a young photographer.
I'm looking forward to seeing this. Sounds promising. Benoît Charest composed the soundtrack, by the way. He's best known for the soundtrack to The Triplets of Belleville (Les Triplettes de Belleville).
