3 French Posters For Terrence Malick's 'To The Wonder'

The Playlist By Edward Davis | The Playlist December 24, 2012 at 10:15AM

It's nice to see the Yeti that is Terrence Malick come out of hiding these last few years. Ever since "The Tree Of Life," Malick's not only been working at an uncharacteristically quick clip, he's actually been finishing films at a rapid pace. His latest, the romance drama "To The Wonder" is already in the can (here's a recent French trailer). Starring Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem (and several cameos, some of which never made the film), reviews from the Toronto International Film Festival and Venice were decidely divided -- some accusing the film to be a culmination of Malick's worst tendencies, others describing it as a work of beauty.

Our review from Venice was one of the positive ones calling the picture a "raw and heartfelt film of loss and longing."  Here's a more update synopsis:

Although they are known in the later, the passion that Neil and Marina lived in Wonder - Le Mont-Saint-Michel - erases the lost years. Neil is sure to have found the woman of his life. Beautiful, humorous, originally from Ukraine, Marina is divorced and the mother of a 10 year old girl, Tatiana. now the couple is located in Oklahoma. Their relationship is weakened Marina feels trapped. In this small American community, she seeks advice from another expatriate, a Catholic priest named Quintana. The man has his own problems: he doubted his vocation ... Marina decided to return to France with his daughter. Neil console with Jane, an old friend that he attaches more. When he learns that nothing goes to Marina, he finds himself torn between two women in his life. Father Quintana continues to struggle to find faith. Faced with two very different forms of love, the two men are facing the same issues.

"To The Wonder" lands in U.K. theaters in February and April 12 in the U.S. [Metro via Film Stage]
