Who doesn’t like kisses? And the unexpected kisses?
We like them! And that is why we are proud to present to you the Story of Francesca and Paolo.
"El Beso" will include English and Spanish subtitles.
Paolo takes the subway everyday afflicted by the solitude of the big cities, a kind of curse that hovers over his life. But everything changes when magic finds him. In the subway tunnels that run under the city he meets Francesca, the magician that comes into his life and that will show him the way to the surface.
ABOUT THE KISS
There is a need for stories that revert the classic formula and the kiss is the answer to that need. The female character gets always rescued by the “blue prince”, at the end of the story she is “saved” by him, and I ask myself, are there no male characters that need saving? … Yes there are! Paolo is one of them and The Kiss is the story where she gets to sweep him off his feet.
The Kiss is the story of how Francesca wakes up Paolo from the curse he is being condemned to. Paolo’s daily routine has withered his life, he lacks hope, and his dream of finding love has faded away. That’s why Francesca’s unexpected and eventful arrival turns into an act of providence. She shows him in most peculiar and unpredictable way a new reality where dreams and love not only exist but also magic.

You can talk with your friends and family about The Kiss.
The Kiss resorts to crowdfunding as a way of financing itself because it couldn’t get financed any other way. Shooting in an old subway cart like the one we will use is a high expense. Why shoot in an old subway cart then? It is key to the story since the old subway will give a tale atmosphere to the film.
The Kiss is the story of a personal travel, an intimate voyage where Paolo finds out magic is possible, and we, the audience, know this can take place in the story because our characters are in a tale. In order to achieve this tale atmosphere we need to resort to elements such a classic and very romantic old subway train. Therefore, crowdfunding is the only way we have to finance this big expense.
If you like tales, or whish for stories with magic, help us make this tale come true and we will fulfill you dream.
