The trailer of Canadian director Denis Villeneuve's next film, Incendies, has finally arrived online. Obviously, the film will have its world premiere at the upcoming Venice International Film Festival. Afterwards, it will be released in Quebec on September 17, 2010.
The film is an adaptation of a play by Canadian playwright Wajdi Mouawad.
In Denis Villeneuve's Incendies, Lebel (Rémy Girard), a notary, reads for Jeanne (Mélissa Désormeaux-Poulin) and Simon Marwan (Maxim Gaudette), two twins, their mother's (Lubna Azabal) will. Both twins are surprised to see two envelopes: one for a father they thought he was dead and one for a brother they've never heard of.
For Jeanne, these two envelopes might help her to understand why her mom has adamantly kept her mouth shut ever since she was in hospital. This is why Jeanne decides to travel to the Middle East in order to know her family's true past. Although he never loved his mom, Simon, because of his bond with his sister, decides to join Jeanne in her trip to the Middle East. Together, with the help of Lebel, the twins will discover that their mother wasn't really what they made her out to be.
Finally, here's the trailer of this Canadian film that was shot in Jordan and Canada.
