Rupert Friend as Stephen: Meet Me in Montenegro

Co-directed, co-written, and co-starring Alex Holdridge and Linnea Saasen, the romantic comedy Meet Me In Montenegro tells the tale of Anderson (Holdridge) an indie filmmaker who must travel to Berlin to take a meeting with an actor who may want to play the lead in a new big-budget sci-fi film he has written. In Berlin he meets up with his old friends Stephen (Rupert Friend) and Friederike (Jennifer Ulrich), a couple who are considering engaging in a group sex encounter. Anderson also makes contact with Lina (Saasen), a dance who broke his heart years earlier when, during a seemingly idyllic trip to Montenegro, she disappeared leaving behind just a note. The movie follows the fortunes of these two couples. Meet Me In Montenegro screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.

The film has some deleted scenes worth studying, by the way 😉

And impressive looks …

But especially we got a very good dose of Rupert in his most pure essence. I had the impression that Stephen was very Rupert, I just loved his work in this movie. I think I remember reading somewhere that he even used some of his clothes in the filming. I found almost nothing related to Rupert’s work in “Meet me in Montenegro” but i’m sure most of you have seen this movie, so… What if you leave a comment at the end of the post with your impressions about the movie and especially about Rupert’s work on it? 🙂
