In futuristic Montreal, two men are smitten with the same girl. Jacob (Jacques Languirand) is an older musician of significant renown; Arthur (Paul Ahmarani) designs musical instruments to be manufactured by his father (Robert Lepage). The object of their desire, Avril (Caroline Dhavernas), is a short-winded photographer short on inspiration. Through teleportation and a device for travelling into the unconscious, the amorous adventures of the time-unstuck trio bring them to Mars — or to what they imagine Mars to be...

“Mars et Avril” is beautiful and haunting, surely one of the most inspired films I’ve seen in recent years! It reminded me of such sci-fi classics as “Brazil” and “Blade Runner”. Director Martin Villeneuve skillfully brings a fresh and different twist to the science fiction genre.
While I had a few quibbles about this film conceptually, on the whole it was intriguing and memorable. Without giving away too much, I will say that this movie takes some shots at the news media, as well as at space mania and the much ballyhooed Mars expedition said to be in our future. We confront the mainstream's fictionalized versions of scientific forays into the search for meaning which are the stock and trade of SF generally. Instead of glorying in high-tech, the focus of Mars et Avril is a journey inward, into the human psyche.
Get together with some friends — the kind of people who like "My Dinner With André" — set out the wine and cheese, and enjoy.

Film for fans of the genre but it has universal elements. Nice story in good taste with futuristic elements. Good music. recommendPublished on Aug. 21 2013 by Wojciech
