by Naman Ramachandran
03/10/2011 - Writer/Director Brendan Muldowney (pictured) has completed principal photography at Irish locations for drama Love Eternal and the unit has moved to Luxembourg for a two-week stint.
Based on Kei Oishi’s Japanese novel Loving the Dead, the film follows a disturbed young man, who after being cloistered for a decade is forced to venture out into a world unfamiliar to him now. The film features a pan-European cast including Dutch actor Robert De Hoog (Met Donker Thuis), British actresses Polyanna McIntosh (The Woman) and Amanda Ryan (Sparkle) and Irish actor Declan Conlon (Hereafter).
Conor Barry, Morgan Bushe and Macdara Kelleher for Fastnet Films, Jeanne Geiben and Pol Cruchten for Red Lion, Reinier Selen for Rinkel Film and Ray Kamiya and Lindsey Newman for T.O. Entertainment, Inc. are producing.
Love Eternal is the first film under the newly minted Ireland-Luxembourg co-production treaty that was signed at the Galway Film Fleadh earlier this year.
Muldowney’s debut feature Savage was nominated for a clutch of Irish Film & Television Awards earlier this year.
