"Love and Other Troubles" producer Andrew D Corkin talks about the film

  One of the producers of Emilie de Ravin's new movie Love and Other Troubles, Andrew D Corkin, recently talked with about his new project and it's potential to have international success! Eventhough the article is in finnish, i hope i don't write something wrong. So here are some parts of it:

On how he met the film's director:
Common on-introduced me to producer Jesse Fryckmanille and Samuli (Valkama). We met in New York, and we became friends since the first meeting. Sam's manuscript was very promising and very cleverly translated in English, which made me confident.
On taking part in a finnish production:
Now is the best time to take part in a Nordic film production. Men who hate women was a huge international success. Also, Finnish films have gained a foothold. Aki Kaurismäki's Le Havre and other films like Rare Exports and the Iron Sky were really successful.The most important thing, however, about "Love and Other Troubles" was the exceptional manuscript.

The difficulties of working on a comedy:
A comedy is often difficult to translate. In one country, a comedy might be locally successful but it is not necessary the film is equally successful anywhere else.Sam's script was sharp, warm-hearted and fun. I knew that it sells. It is truly international, and the presence of Emilie will help, of course.

Here is the source of the interview: If you speak finnish and find out that i wrote something wrong, please don't hesitate to leave a comment or send me an email here:
