Adonis Florides Shooting Rosemarie
Rosemarie is a drama about a burned out soap opera writer who turns his gaze upon his dysfunctional neighbours, only to get inspiration than he bargained for. Adonis Florides also wrote the script
Rosemarie, which was completed in 2016 through AMP Filmworks in coproduction with Andros Achilleos through the Cyprus company Seahorse Films, is a drama about Costa, a television writer. Costa has to write the next episode of the series Rosemary but finds he has writer’s block. His inspiration returns when he begins spying on the family living next door and uses their lives to fuel television ratings.
Rosemarie is a provocative film that challenges the Cypriot social status quo, and Florides probes its limits by remaining faithful to one of his characters’ citations: that everything should be filled with the right amount of soap to sanitise things, idealise them, wrap them up in glitzy paper and sell them to a masquerading society that tries to entomb its sins.
The 115-minute-long drama was directed and written by Adonis Florides and stars Yiannis Kokkinos, Andreas Vassiliou and Androulla Erakleous. The film, which was supported by the Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus, had a budget of 850,000 EUR.
