Upcoming: Michel Houllebecq's The Possibility of an Island

The Possibility of an Island (La possibilité d'une île), the debut film of the controversial French writer Michel Houllebecq, is finally upon us and due to a September release. The Guardian's film blog says there is a possibility of a masterpiece lurking in this sci-fi crammed with the author's obsessions with genetics. The trailer is already available and, if you can judge a film by its trailer, I'm not sure I would agree with that statement. But still, the film begs to be seen because, as a writer, Houllebecq is indeed very, very interesting and bright.
