Based on an acclaimed graphic novel, Mars & Avril is set in Montreal of the future, at the dawn of the first human landing on Mars, and tells the story of a musician who becomes obsessed with his muse.

Visually the movie is Fantastic. Great costumes and the Hair styles were in a league of there own. For me the problem was with the story. Just way to surreal. Like the writer was on some kind of LSD trip, woke up and wrote the script. Just could not get into it. Fast forwarded most of it.

In my humble opinion this movie is not about futurists or science fiction. It's more a fantasy, an other view of actual realities. I like it the way I like paintings of Impressionists more than photos, realism paintings or paintings of mythical characters. I like it the way I like harmony based modern music more than melody based classical music.
It's definitely not Avatar, Star Wars or Star Trek. It's closer to Alice In Wonderland, at a lower budget!
