Marco Lui’s The Book of Life now available

1.6.12 | | 7 comments

Those of you who attended last year’s LDS Film Festival (or read coverage of it) may recall the film “The Book of Life” by Marco Lui. It was quite the audience favorite, garnering favorable local media coverage and a very positive review at Mormon Artist Magazine. And if that’s not good enough for you — KevinB at AMV sister site LDS Cinema Online gives it a B+.

It is now available as a $4.99 download at Audience Alliance.

Not only is the film a new take on the classic “boy-girl meet in pre-existence and then meet again on earth narrative”, it’s an Italian (with English subtitles) LDS-themed comedy. Plus the press clippings (and people I know who have seen the film) say that Marco has a real gift for physical comedy. An Italian Mormon Modern-day Charlie Chaplin? That’s worth checking out.

    Stupid WordPress conflicting with the YouTube embed code is what. Let me see if I can fix it.

    Compare Lui’s protag’s look to Begnini in ‘La Vita E Bella.’ Cane + Gangly + Physical Comedy.

    This looks like my kind of film.

    Except I can’t get it to download. Have emailed the company, but what are the chances that this will be resolved before FHE on the East Coast? I’d better come up with Plan B.
