Marisa in the Woods (Feature Film)

Marisa in the Woods is the debut movie of the filmmaker Antonio Morales. It aims to resemble a story written by Woody Allen that Eric Rohmer would direct in Madrid. This is a urban, fantasy-driven tragicomedy, that welcomes the advent of a different way of looking to the new Spanish cinema.

Storyline

Marisa is 35 and feels lost in life. Having no projects, job or expectations of her own, she gradually forgets about herself and focuses on Mina, her best friend, who is overcome with grief after breaking up with Salvador. When she turns to her friends for support, she only finds more problems, more lives adrift.

A tragic event disturbs the fragile balance of Marisa’s life, leading her to seek comfort in Madrid’s nightlife. She is ready to vanish quietly, as if fading out from life.

A Debut Film

Marisa in the Woods is Antonio Morales’ first feature film. He has previously directed and written short films and theater plays. He aims to create a movie similar to what could have come from Eric Rohmer directing a story written by Woody Allen and set in Madrid. He draws inspiration from the fresh and spontaneous feature films by Jean-Luc Godard (Breathless), Leos Carax (Boy Meets Girl), Jim Jarmusch (Permanent Vacation), Cam Archer (Wild Tigers I Have Known), Harmony Korine (Gummo), John Cassavetes (Shadows) and, why not, Pedro Almodóvar (Pepi, Lucy y Bom). Marisa in the Woods is a refreshing, strange and unclassifiable comedy that shares with other feature films the urgent need to portray a young generation that wants to remain youthful. With a wide range of characters and situations which make it unique, the movie has that special charm which can only be found in debut films. It represents the arrival of a new perspective into the world.

What makes an author essential is already present in his first film (François Truffaut)

Style

Antonio Morales would like for his first movie to have a touch of George Cukor or François Truffaut’s actors direction, Richard Linklater or Eric Rohmer’s fresh and natural dialogs, Jacques Rivette or W. Fassbinder’s ability to surprise with unclassifiable stories, and Agnès Varda’s umpredictable pace. Based on the script, it would be difficult to relate Morales’ style to any other Spanish filmmaker's. His style brings us back to the dialogs in Cesc Gay’s movies, in terms of how spontaneous and natural they are, as well as to Fernando Fernán Gómez and Juan Cabestany, for its connection to theater plays. His style is also reminiscent of Carlos Vermut and Iván Zulueta for its use of fantasy and its casual combination of genres.

One thing is clear: Morales is part of the next generation of filmmakers, led by Carlos Vermut with his successful movie Magical Girl, which includes names as diverse as Luis López Carrasco (The Future), Oskar Alegría (Emak Bakia House), Ion de Sosa (Android Dream) or Daniel Castro (Hope), all of them characterized by a radically free and personal style.

#01 / ¡Estrenamos Teaser de MARISA EN LOS BOSQUES!

Queridos mecenas
El pasado domingo 25 de octubre dio por finalizado el rodaje de MARISA EN LOS BOSQUES, un rodaje que se sido posible gracias a vuestro apoyo incondicional. Cada plano, cada secuencia, cada objeto, cada, espacio, cada elemento… Está ahí gracias a vuestra generosidad, para construir una película que verá la luz a mediados de 2016. Ahora empieza el largo y duro proceso de montaje y posproducción de sonido. Nos iremos poniendo en contacto con vosotros para confirmar información y empezar a hacer efectivas las recompensas. Por lo pronto, aquí tenéis el TEASER. Un pequeño fragmento donde faltan gran parte de los grandes actores que han dado vida a los personajes, pero que brillarán –como han hecho durante el rodaje- en el montaje final. La idea era transmitir con lo mínimo parte del espíritu de la película.
Esta película ya es vuestra. Nos vemos pronto en la Premiere.

Gracias.
