The Portuguese film A Floresta das Almas Perdidas, an independent production, starring Daniela Love and Jorge Mota and which marks the debut of future José Pedro Lopes, premieres tomorrow, October 30 on HBO Portugal.
In the interior of Portugal, in an isolated forest known for its recurrent suicidal practices, two people meet by chance. Ricardo is a father in depression, after his eldest daughter committed suicide a year ago, precisely in this forest. Carolina is an irresponsible and unimportant young woman with dark and peculiar tastes that involve death. Stirred by this meeting, they decide not to kill themselves, but to walk in the impressive forest, where they become friends. However, one of them is not who he claims to be.
The inspiration for the project came from the Japanese forest of Aokigahara – the most famous place in the world for the practice of suicide.
