THE GIRL AND DEATH shoot started
November 7, 2011
Shooting on Dutch veteran filmmaker Jos Stelling’s new film THE GIRL AND DEATH has started today. The film tells the timeless story of Nicolai, an old Russian doctor, who returns to the place where he met the love of his life Elise half a century ago.
The film stars Sylvia Hoeks (THE GANG OF OSS, TIRZA, THE STORM), this year’s Shooting Star from the Netherlands, who plays Elise. The other lead, the role of young Nicolai, is played by the Russian actor Leonid Bichevin. The remaining cast consists of several well known actors from Germany and Russia.
THE GIRL AND DEATH is mostly situated in a hotel in Tannenfeld, Thüringen (former East-Germany), where the greater part of the shooting will take place as well. The hotel has fallen into decay and has been abandoned, but it still bears witness to an impressive past. This is where Nicolai remembers everything and relives history.
THE GIRL AND DEATH is produced by Jos Stelling Films in co-production with Ma.ja.de. fiction (Germany).The movie will be released in 2012.
