Tweetable Logline:

A road movie set in Cyprus about a chance meeting between a man and a runaway bride.
Elevator Pitch:
“Committed” is a road-trip movie set on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. It will be shot in English but it will have the unmistakable flavour of Cyprus. The story is a romantic comedy about a man who takes to the road to escape the pressure of proposing to his girlfriend, only to come across a bride who has just run out on her wedding.

What ensues is a bizarre road trip which explores ideas about love, marriage and commitment, with a big surprise ending. It’s “When Harry Met Sally” on the road with a twist.

Production Team:

Director: Stelana Kliris
Executive Producers: Fullmoon Productions, Seahorse Film Productions, Filmworks
Director of Photography: Stephan Metzner
Editor: Stylianos Constantinou

About the Production:
“I love stories about the human heart and “Commtted” was a chance to take a fun, frank look at our modern perceptions of love.

Also, quite recently, local film funds in Cyprus have been cut. This has slowed down our already-small film industry. So I wrote this low-budget feature, gathered up the support of local crews and companies in an attempt to create work for ourselves and to prove that you don’t need millions to tell a good story. It’s a quirky, feel-good film with heart and a chance to expose Cyprus and its film community to the world.”  – Stelana Kliris
