Moodysson's next film: Mammoth

Postby oeb » Wed Aug 15, 2007 7:31 pm

Lukas Moodysson's next film, titled Mammoth, will be a major international co-production in English language. Shooting starts in October, so it's likely to appear in cinemas around the world autumn 2008, and on DVD spring 2009.

With a budget of 70 million SEK (approx. 10 million USD) it's his biggest so far, and even though this is not much compared to Hollywood standard it's almost four times the size of a regular Swedish film (and seven times to cost of his first feature film Fucking Åmål).

As usual the film will be produced by Lars Jönsson’s Memfis Film, in co-production with Zentropa’s Danish and new German production entities. Other co-financiers include Film i Väst, SVT, TV2 Denmark, the Swedish and Danish film institutes. Nordisk Film & TV Fund is also attached to the film.

Mammoth revolves around the successful New York couple Tom and Ellen, their eight-year old daughter and their Filipino nanny Gloria. On a business trip to Thailand, Tom realises that he wants to change his life...

In a press release from Memfis Film quoted in numerous articles it's stated that this will not be another art project like his previous two films "Ett hål i mitt hjärta" and "Container", but a much more accessible film. Lukas Moodysson states that compared to his earlier works it will be closest "Tillsammans" and "Lilja 4-ever".

Well, I haven't seen "Container" and I didn't like "Ett hål i mitt hjärta" (maybe I don't understand "art" :lol: ), but I enjoyed "Tillsammans" and "Lilja 4-ever"; both (mainly Lilja...) are great films.
So, if similar, I hope that new film will be a good one.

This particular film of Lukas is more exciting for me because not only do I get to see his work again but having to expect a character in it close to home. I see that they will deal with many characters including a Filipino. I am from the Philippines and it's pretty exciting for us on the home front to see Mammoth. Sure, it's another stereotypical role (a nanny isn't all you got to see for most of us) but I hope it would divulge a fine storytelling of our culture for the whole world to see. Good luck, Lukas!
