Roy Dupuis, Pascale Bussières Starring in Mind-bending Short ‘Take Me To A Nice Place’
Montréal-supported movie envisioned by director Kristof Brandl and co-writer Shane Patrick.
The teaser trailer has dropped on “Take Me To A Nice Place,” a dystopian Montréal-set movie about a mysterious family in a dying world who destroys the little that remains of humanity in order to create their twisted yet idyllic future.
Roy Dupuis, who scored two Genie Awards for best performance by an actor in a leading role for “Maurice Richard” and “Mémoires affectives,” plays a hunter who prowls the outskirts of Montréal, killing the last humans he finds. Pascale Bussières, who plays a scientist, raises a group of ten same age children alone in an underground shelter in Northern Quebec. Over the course of the film, both stories crescendo towards the climax when the true nature of both plots comes to a surprise conclusion.
Kristof Brandl helms the director’s chair for this short film alongside cinematographer Christophe Collette csc, continuing the duo’s portfolio together which includes “The Kids”, a favourite of Ridley Scott’s at the 28th New Directors’ Showcase at Cannes Lions. A host of Montreal based talent is involved in the picture, including its producer Samuel Caron, and screenwriter Shane Patrick. The cast and team that put “Take Me To A Nice Place” together is a mix of upcoming talent, seasoned names, and a handful of companies from all around the world including Berlin, London, Milan, and Paris, who’ve joined forces to make this project come to life. It is truly an ultimate collaboration.
