Chicken With Plums - Theatrical Trailer

The French drama Chicken with Plums (based off the novel, 'Poulet aux prunes') is the story about a celebrated Iranian violinist who settles down with a wife and child, but finds himself in crisis mode when his beloved violin is destroyed. Unable to find joy in life, he resigns himself to death and descends into a surreal state of introspection. The trailer gave off an eclectic, dreamy feel, one very similar to Tarsem's The Fall, which sparked our imagination with it's colorful imagery and landscapes. Released in Europe last autumn, this beautiful looking film made it's way over to the US just a few months ago via the film festival route, so we're hoping for a limited release.

This is Marjane Satrapi's second directorial release, following 2007's thought provoking Perspepolis. The Iranian born female director has brought a wealth of different perspectives in her films, and we're looking forward to seeing what she does next. Keep your eyes peeled for this one.
