“What’s particular about Martin Villeneuve is that he has faith in what he’s doing. His great strength is his ability to think of a plan B that’s always better than plan A. For example, since Robert Lepage (right) was unavailable for principal photography, he integrated him virtually into his scenes as a hologram! What a plan B!”

Science-fiction films do not come cheap. Star Trek Into Darkness reportedly had a budget of $190 million, while the Will and Jaden Smith vehicle After Earth, which opens this weekend, cost $130 million. (Side note: Jaden Smith recently shared with New York Magazine that his dad watches “hours and hours of TED Talks.”) That’s why it’s so thoroughly amazing that Mars et Avril, a stunning sci-fi epic set in Montreal 50 years in the future, was made with a budget of just $2.3 million.
