Montenegro” opens in select cities and hits VOD on July 10, but prior to that it screens this week at the currently underway Provincetown International Film Festival, which is celebrating its 17th year. The comedy follows the funny romance of two ex-lovers — a Norwegian dancer and an American
filmmaker. The film marks Holdridge’s follow-up to award winning indie “In Search of a Midnight Kiss.”
Here’s the film’s synopses per the Toronto International Film Festival, where it screened last September: “Los Angeles-based Anderson (played by Holdridge) is a writer-filmmaker whose career and life have both stalled. Depleted emotionally by the vagaries of film financing, Anderson finds himself waxing nostalgic about a blissful but brief romantic tryst he had with Lina (Saasen), a beautiful Norwegian dancer, years ago in Montenegro. Seeking distraction from his obsessions over what might have been, he visits his friends Stephen (Rupert Friend) and Friederike (Jennifer Ulrich) in Berlin. While Stephen and Friederike strive to keep the spark alive in their long-term relationship, Anderson unexpectedly runs into Lina. Their undeniable attraction at first fills them with joy. But things are not so simple, and the question of what’s more important, their love or their artistic careers, will have to be resolved.”
