'To the Wonder' clip has Ben Affleck visiting Le Mont Saint-Michel, the French landmark referred to in the film's title
Terrence Malick's latest film, "To the Wonder," lands in theaters next month, but the first clip just landed on the internet, featuring Ben Affleck and Olga Kurylenko visiting the European landmark that makes up the film's title.
Le Mont Saint-Michel, often referred to as "the wonder of the Western world," is a small, rocky island off the coast of Normandy, which is home to a massive medieval fort-turned-monestary that attracts millions of visitors each year.
In Malick's film — which didn't impress critics when it premiered last year at the 69th Venice Film Festival — Affleck falls for Kurylenko when the two meet in France. But after moving to Oklahoma to start a life together, their relationship begins to fall apart as Affleck sparks another relationship with his childhood sweetheart, played by Rachel McAdams.
There isn't much dialogue in the clip, and that dialogue is in French. But like much of Malick's work, it sure is pretty to look at.
Here's the clip:
