New French Poster For Terrence Malick's 'To The Wonder' Shows The Close-Up Crush Of Love

Sometimes, as with the twenty-year span between "Days of Heaven" and "The Thin Red Line," waiting for a Terrence Malick movie can be unbearable. A little bit like waiting for Godot. And yet, suddenly, all that has changed. "The Tree Of Life" arrived in 2011 and his latest film, "To The Wonder" hit the film festival circuit in 2012. It arrives this spring in domestic theaters and to boot, Malick already has two more films in the can, one of which we might see during the 2013 fall film festival circuit if we're lucky. Presumably the filmmaker is making up for lost time.

Sometimes, as with the twenty-year span between "Days of Heaven" and "The Thin Red Line," waiting for a Terrence Malick movie can be unbearable. A little bit like waiting for Godot. And yet, suddenly, all that has changed. "The Tree Of Life" arrived in 2011 and his latest film, "To The Wonder" hit the film festival circuit in 2012. It arrives this spring in domestic theaters and to boot, Malick already has two more films in the can, one of which we might see during the 2013 fall film festival circuit if we're lucky. Presumably the filmmaker is making up for lost time. 

We've already seen two different trailers and three French posters for "To The Wonder" (its released there early, on March 6), and now a final French poster has arrived as well which you can see below.

Is it a strange film? Trailers and divisive reviews suggest something with little narrative and a picture of fleeting, ephemeral moments that left some critics baffled. "I definitely get confused. But I like that feeling, because it forces me into something else," Rachel McAdams told us in Toronto last year about her experience in watching the film. "You're working different muscles, you're being asked to participate a bit more than other times, when things all make sense, and it's all wrapped up for you, and you don't have to ask any questions, and you don't have to feel confused, and you don't have to feel angry because you don't know what something means. And I think it's a really interesting way to watch a film. I think we're out of practice with it a little bit."

"It shows love in all its forms," Olga Kurylenko explained with her take on the movie. "It makes us ask questions, about what love really is. Sometimes you have to go through a lot of pain to learn about a bigger, beautiful truth, and how to live life. It's learning it the hard way."

Starring Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem (folks like Rachel Weisz and many others were left on the cutting room floor), "To The Wonder" hits theaters in the U.S. on April 12th and arrives even earlier in the U.K. on February 22. You can read our review from the Venice Film Festival here.
