Marina Antunes [Celluloid 03.26.13] Canada thriller

French Canadian director Martin Doepner isn't exactly a new kid on the block but the long time second unit director (on everything from Frank Oz' The Score, to David Fincher's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Zack Snyder's 300 and most recently Jonathan Levine's Warm Bodies (review)), it's safe to say he's been on a couple of big sets. Now the director is making a big move directing his own project, a period thriller titled Rouge Sang.

The story unfolds in 1799 in a remote corner of the St. Lawrence where a young mother is forced to take in five British soldiers but over the long and stormy night, tension builds and the woman is faced with having to fight off the intruders. It doesn't sound like anything with a particular genre twist but the trailer suggests that Esperance (Isabelle Guerard) goes beyond just fighting off attackers and into something far darker.

Rouge Sang recently opened the Canadian Film Festival were it took home two awards including Best Picture and Best Actress and it definitely looks like one to keep on the radar.
