Committed to innovation and diversification of its content, Globo offers its audience two movies by Globo Filmes among its successful products during the NATPE in Miami. The Moving Forest, based on William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, is a thriller that revolves around a couple in a frantic search for prestige. And Alone Man, a story that involves comedy, romance, and drama, following the path of a man who must confront himself to find his own happiness.
Ambition and power go hand in hand in The Moving Forest. The movie tells the story of Elias (Gabriel Braga Nunes, Irrational Heart), a successful executive, and his wife Clara (Ana Paula Arósio, Terra Nostra). One day, returning from a business trip, Elias crosses paths with a strange woman who predicts his fate, saying that on that day he would become vice president of the bank where he worked, and soon would become president. Intrigued, he shares what happened with his wife. From this moment on, the wheel of fortune is put in motion, and Elias and Clara begin to engage in a series of murders, which make them executors and victims of their own fate.
With screenplay by Vinícius Coimbra, director of Lady Revolution and Manuela Dias, author of Above Justice and Dangerous Liaisons, the cast of The Moving Forest also features the talented Nelson Xavier (Ambitious Women) and Ângelo Antônio (Parts of Me and Above Justice).
Alone Man tells the story of Arnaldo (Vladimir Brichta, Above Justice), a frustrated man who finds himself trapped in a mediocre reality involving a failed marriage and a job he hates. That is until he meets Josie (Mariana Ximenes, Passione), a young woman of a singular beauty, and with an eccentric way of working with her aunt at a pet cemetery. In love and ready to change his life, he finds an illegal clinic that specialises in cloning humans, believing that a replica of himself would be the solution to all his problems. However, Arnaldo does not realise that to go ahead with his plans means facing himself.
Written and directed by Cláudia Jouvin, one of the authors of the comedy Last Night, the cast of Alone Man features Ingrid Guimarães, Otávio Müller, and Eliane Giardini.
