Ville-Marie directed by Guy Édoin is screening in the Panorama section of the 19th Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival running November 13 to 29, 2015.
Ville-Marie starring Monica Bellucci, Aliocha Schneider, Patrick Hivon and Pascale Bussières, had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, an international premiere at the Rome Film Festival on October 20, and in addition to Tallinn will screen at the Windsor International Film Festival (3-8 November 2015) and the Festival international du cinéma francophone en Acadie (12-20 November 2015).
While filming in Montreal, a European actress (Monica Bellucci) tries to reconcile with her son (Aliocha
Schneider), who is a student in the city. But he witnesses a disturbing incident, reigniting his desire to learn who his father is. On his birthday, he is determined to get answers by confronting his mother. What he doesn’t know is that the film his mother is making was specifically designed to answer his questions. Meanwhile, a paramedic haunted by his past (Patrick Hivon) tries to hold himself together as a kindhearted nurse (Pascale Bussières) watches over him from a distance, while keeping a chaotic emergency room running. At Ville-Marie Hospital, these four lives will collide and change forever.
