As some of you know, who have been following this blog since the beginning, I became friends last January 2009 with another big fan of Marisa Mell whose name is André Schneider, currently living in Berlin (Germany).
André Scheider is at this moment in the stage of writing a book about the films of Marisa Mell due to appear in the very near future. At crucial times these past months, he has often helped me with clarifying uncertain aspects of her life or movies for this blog which was always highly appreciated! But André is first and foremorst a very talented young film maker. Writing scripts, directing, acting, production... you name it and he has done it. So this summer 2009 he tackled a new project called "Alex und der Löwe", based on his own script. A comedy about a group of friends struggling with love, friendship, trust, deceit... and everything in between while living in Berlin at the beginning of the 21st century. Next to André Scheider in the title role as "Alex", the main cast of this movie composes of Marcel Schlutt, Sascia Haj, Udo Lutz, Beate Kurecki and ... Celito. The director of this movie is Yuri Gárate. The movie was shot during an often difficult production process between June 6th and August 30th 2009. But thanks to his and the crew's endurance, the film is now in the can and the final editing process is going to start very soon. To have a first gilmpse of what the movie is all about, the first trailer has been made public. More info will be posted on this blog in the next few months.
