Heal the Living Trailer

"We can try to figure out what Simon would have wanted." Cohen Media Group has debuted an official US trailer for the French indie drama Heal the Living, based on the book of the same name (Réparer les vivants) by Maylis De Kerangal. The film stars Tahar Rahim (from A Prophet and The Past) as Thomas Rémige, a doctor who is tasked with caring for a young teenage surfer boy who is in a coma after a car crash. The story follows the lives of three different people, and how they connect after a horrific accident. The cast includes Emmanuelle Seigner, Anne Dorval, Bouli Lanners, Kool Shen, Monia Chokri, and Alice Taglioni. The film already played at film festivals last fall, and opens this month. This has some stunning cinematography, and it looks like a tender, emotional film about grief. This trailer totally got my attention.

Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Katell Quillévéré's Heal the Living, direct from YouTube:

An interweaving of three stories connected to each other via an accident… Early in the morning three surfers draw out to sea to brave the waves. On the road they get an accident. The nineteen-year-old Simon Limbres is transported to the hospital in a comatose state, where the doctor finds that his brain is dead. He is kept alive by machines. His parents must quickly make a difficult decision about possible organ donation. Heal the Living (or Réparer les vivants in French) is directed by Ivory Coast-born filmmaker Katell Quillévéré, of the films Suzanne and Love Like Poison previously. The screenplay is written by Katell Quillévéré and Gilles Taurand; based on the novel of the same name by Maylis De Kerangal. This first premiered at the Venice, Toronto and London Film Festivals last fall. Cohen Media Group will release Katell Quillévéré's Heal the Living in select theaters starting April 14th this month. Anyone interested in this?

This looks like an excellent movie!

By the way, I watched Silence. My thoughts: Scorcese played with lot of allegories and symbolism with a a pitch of some philosophical dilemmas. While I liked the ideas tackled by this movie, and production design, I must confess that I was never emotionally involved in the story. To be honest, and while I acknowledge the talent of Andrew Garfield, I thought he has terribly miscast. He never looked like a fervent priest who struggles with his doubts. In the same vein, I prefer The Bridge on the River Kwai.

Although it looks something that might be seen before, this still remains an anticipation of intriguing ...
