[Image removed due to Google prudishness. Naturally, you can see the image here thanks to Google Images.]Les Films Seville has released an outstanding trailer for Denys Arcand’s upcoming film Le règne de la beauté (The Reign of Beauty). The film, previously titled Two Nights, sees Canada’s Oscar winner for The Barbarian Invasions return with his Invasions star Marie-Josée Croze in what looks like an intriguing infidelity drama. The NFSW trailer hints at Arcand’s signature musings on love, sex, and all things Québécois set amidst a bilingual love triangle that spirals out of control. The Reign of Beauty is presumably Cannes-bound, but Les Films Seville notes its Quebec release as expected for this Spring. (The release for the rest of Canada is TBA.) Maybe the rest of us will have to wait until TIFF if Arcand will be repping Canada at the Oscars once again? Either way, this film looks quite promising! (Hat tip to the Film Circuit for sharing it!)
