Javier Calvo and Javier Ambrossi, step by step, have become two television authors who get a “yes” from whatever talent they want. You just have to watch the trailer for La Mesías, the original series they created for Movistar. There are Carmen Machi, Lola Dueñas and Rossy de Palma in a cast that includes Macarena García, Ana Rujas, Gracia Olayo, Roger Casamajor, Albert Pla, Nora Navas, Cecilia Roth, Carla Díaz and the singers Amaia and Albert Pla.
The protagonist mother has the following conversation with God.
- My God, tell me, what do you want.
- To your childs.
- And why do you want my children?
- So they can save the world.
-And how do they have to save it?
- Singing. Dancing.
The images reveal a story with different temporal planes. The childhood of some sisters who, used by their mother, dedicate themselves to recording pop songs, to the point of keeping them isolated from the world to fulfill the request of the almighty. On the other hand, the consequences and traumatic experiences of having grown up with a fundamentalist Christian mother. This is what Macarena Gómez suggests in her role, marked both physically and psychologically by that childhood in which she, instead of serving God, served a mother with a mission.
La Mesías is presented this Friday at the San Sebastián Film Festival and will arrive on Movistar Plus on October 11. Its filming took place in Catalonia and it is not ruled out that the Javis were freely inspired by a Catalan cultural anecdote: the viral group Flos Mariae, now dissolved, formed by seven sisters who preached the word of the Lord through their songs and who even promoted your own dating website for young Christians.
