MARIFE Necesito, who landed an important role in âMammoth,â which stars Academy and Golden Globe Award nominee, Michelle Williams, and acclaimed actor Gael Ga rcia Bernal, shared with us the link to the trailer of her international film ( posted on the bottom of this blog). âMammothâ is the first English-language fil m of Swedish writer-director Lukas Moodysson. As we reported earlier, in âMammoth,â Marife plays Gloria, a mother of two sons who leaves the Philippines to work as the nanny of the daughter (Sophie Nyweid e) of a successful New York couple, played by Gael and Michelle. When Gaelâs bu sinessman character goes to Thailand, he realizes that he wants to change his l ife. This development sets off a dramatic chain of events that impact the chara cters of Marife, Michelle and Sophie. Marife informed us that she filmed her scenes in New York, Sweden and the Phili ppines, specifically in Subic and Bataan. The trailer of the film prominently f eatures Marife, including an emotional scene where she speaks in Tagalog to her two sons on the phone. The two sons are also shown on a beach in the Philippin es, as shot by Lukasâ cinematographer, Marcel Zyskind, whose credits include An gelina Jolieâs âA Mighty Heart.â Marife shared that she had to dub a few of her lines in a dubbing st udio in Makati. She also told us via e-mail that in anticipation of the filmâs release early next year, she is doing phone interviews with the Swedish press, as arranged by Memfis Film, one of the production companies involved in the mak ing of âMammoth.â The Filipina actress added that Lukas is still making final editing work on âMa mmoth.â Lukas is the highly praised filmmaker of films like âLilja 4-ever,â âSh ow Me Loveâ and âTogether.â Lukas, who made the final decision to pick Marife f or the part, was hailed by his esteemed compatriot, the late Ingmar Bergman, as a âyoung master.â Marife said she enjoyed working with Michelle, whose credits include Ang Leeâs âBrokeback Mountain,â and Gael, the Mexican thespian whoâs enjoying a sterling international career with such films as âBabel,â âThe Motorcycle Diariesâ and âAmores Perros.â Hereâs the link to the trailer.
