Womb trailer starring Eva Green and Dr Who
Yes Matt Smith is to be known as Dr Who forever now, he'll have a tough job removing the title from his name, but if he keeps delivering film performances between series like this then he might just manage it.
Starring alongside Eva Green in Womb, which was written and directed by Benedek Fliegauf, he plays a very different role, and one that might deliver a little bit of controversy too.
When I first read the blurb and watched the trailer I didn't really understand what the film was about, but following it up with the IMDB blurb a simple word or two revealed the truth, and it's an interesting idea. Let me take you on the same path first, here's the blurb...
Rebecca [who] has waited twelve long years to be reunited with her childhood sweetheart, only to loose him again in a fatal accident. The only difference is, now she can bring him back from the dead.
...now you might be thinking of some kind of horror with people being resurrected from the dead, well don't, stay with it and watch the trailer found through The Playlist, a trailer which will confuse you a little after that blurb.
Okay? You're confused now aren't you? I certainly was. Then look at this blurb from IMDB for Womb:
A woman's consuming love forces her to bear the clone of her dead beloved. From his infancy to manhood, she faces the unavoidable complexities of her controversial decision.
Okay, that's now slightly bizarre. I'm trying to work this out still but it's really caught my attention. I think what we're seeing is that the woman is going to give birth to a clone of her true love, and I suspect try and bring him up as his mother. Is the clone going to age faster, or will they end up being mother and son? Will there be a romantic connection afterwards? It has all manner of strange possibilities doesn't it?
