'Miraculum' Teaser

A teaser trailer has landed for the upcoming Canadian film Miraculum, which is one of the films I’m most looking forward to seeing in the coming months. Les Films Séville released the brief teaser recently and it gives just a quick taste of the epic scale of tragedy this film tells. Miraculum is the latest film from director Podz (aka Daniel Grou), whose powerful L’affaire Dumont was a Best Picture nominee at the Canadian Screen Awards this year. Miraculum stars a roster of Québécois talents, most notably Xavier Dolan and his I Killed My Mother / Les amours imaginaires co-star Anne Dorval. Also starring in the multi-narrative ensemble film are Marilyn Castonguay (L’affaire Dumont), Gilbert Sicotte (Le vendeur), Julien Poulin (Camion) Jean-Nicholas Verrault (Maelstrom), Gabriel Sabourin (who also wrote the film’s screenplay), and Louise Turcot. The film is expected to be released in 2014 from Les Films Séville (exact date TBA) so we’ll keep you posted on this highly anticipated film. (Synopsis after the jump.)

Synopsis: Sometimes, we're just waiting for a miracle. A nurse who is a Jehovah's Witness, grows fond of the miracle survivor of a plane crash. Two sexagenarians, a bartender and a parking lot attendant want to explore their forbidden passions. A conservative, well-off couple drown their disappointments in booze and gambling. And a man does his utmost to make amends for an irredeemable action, bringing us to a plane bound for Cuba. An ensemble film where every character affects the lives of others.
