A breakout selection of the midnight section of Cannes in 2010, Black Heaven is directed by an exciting new French filmmaker called Gilles Marchand. The story (featuring a terrifically sexy young cast) follows an innocent young kid, Gaspar (Gregoire Leprince-Ringuet of Love Songs), who, becoming enamored with a mysterious/gorgeous girl (Louise Bourgoin, The Girl from Monaco), is lured into "Black Hole" - a dark, obscure video game world of avatars with deadly serious intentions in the real world. Watch the trailer.
