Indie Trailer Sunday: Gilles Marchand's Black Heaven Trailer
by Alex Billington
April 25, 2010
Just like last weekend, today I wanted to feature another new indie trailer for a film that's premiering at the Cannes Film Festival next month. The movie is called Black Heaven, or L'autre Monde in French, and is directed by French filmmaker Gilles Marchand of Who Killed Bambi?. It's kind of a techno-thriller/drama about a couple who pick up a lost cellphone that leads them to find an unconscious girl who is trying to kill herself. Later, the main guy gets pulled into some video game world called Black Heaven (or Black Hole) and is convinced in-game to commit suicide himself. Kind of a weird premise, but it still looks very interesting.
Watch the first French trailer for Gilles Marchand's Black Heaven:
Black Heaven, aka L'autre Monde in French, is written and directed by French filmmaker Gilles Marchand, who attended La Fémis in Paris and is directing his second feature film after Who Killed Bambi? in 2003. The screenplay was co-written by Dominik Moll, of Harry Is Here to Help and Lemming previously. It does not have a US distributor yet, but is currently looking for one. It will open in France in June after Cannes.
Black Heaven is one of two films showing in the Midnight Screenings category of the Cannes Film Festival this year. I'm planning on seeing it at the fest and will let you know what I think after! How does it look?

I was excited until the part about the video game. Reminds me of that shitty game/killer movie with Frankie Muniz.

Okay, so this seems like an amalgamation of Fear dot com, Stay Alive and the 13th floor...not too interested.
