  Writer Reacts to Mother of Tears
Adam and I checked out a cut of 'The Mother of Tears' on Thursday and were blown away! The music and color correction aren't done yet, but the visuals are already amazing. It's not going to be crazy colored light like in 'Suspiria' - Dario was adamant about not wanting to repeat himself - but he's come up with some really great stuff, which promises to only get better once the digital intermediate is done.
Of course, that's from the screenwriter, so it's kind of tooting one's own horn, but still . . . here's to hoping!

A synopsis found on IMDB reads as such:
The final installment of Dario Argento's "Three Mothers" trilogy. The film centers on a young American art student, Sarah, who "unwittingly opens an ancient urn that unleashes the demonic power of the world's most powerful witch. As a scourge of suicides plague the city and witches from all over the world converge on Rome to pay homage, Sarah must use all her own psychic powers to stop the 'Mother of Tears' before her evil conquers the world."

Casting is as follows:
Sarah Mandy -- Asia Argento
Mater Lacrimarum -- Moran Atias
Marta -- Valeria Cavalli
Michael Pierce -- Adam James
Padre Johannes -- Udo Kier (though he played Dr. Mandel in Suspiria)
Monsignor Brusca -- Franco Leo

Uomo col Cappotto -- Clive Riche
Elga -- Silvia Rubino
Cristian Solimeno -- Detective Enzo Marchi
Coralina Cataldi Tassoni -- Giselle

Philippe Leroy and Massimo Sarchielli are also listed in the cast, but their characters are of yet unknown.

Max von Sydow unfortunately does not seem to be attached to the project anymore.

Also, Jessica Harper who had the lead role of Suzy in Suspiria is rumored to appear in the film.

Water Fasano, an Italian director and La Terza Madre's film editor, and Simona Simonetti, who maybe related to the film's composer Claudio Simonetti, are attached to the script along with Dario Argento, Jace Anderson, and Adam Gierasch.

AND OMG THE FIRST PHOTOGRAPH OF THE FILM HAS BEEN RELEASED!!!  And what could it be of?  Dario Argento of course, stabbing a beautiful woman to death.  G-d love the man.  This other page has a brief article about the film, but its in Italian, so I have no idea what it says.  But feel free to read it.

Mother of Tears 
01:48am 06/06/2006
  Just a little update about information for Mother of Tears.

Dario Argento is writing, directing and producing.

His brother, Claudio, is co-producing.

Claudio Simonetti is doing the score.  He's worked with Argento for many of his films including Suspiria.

One of the stars will be legendary Swedish actor Max von Sydow, who I must say is just an incredible, incredible actor which makes me so thrilled to see his name on the credits.  For anyone who doesn't know him, he's worked with famous director, Ingmar Bergman, in countless works including The Seventh Seal and The Virgin Spring, but is probably most famous State side for being Father Merrin in The Exorcist.

Hello everyone! I decided to put "the three mothers" on my interest list to see if anyone else had it on theres. To my surprise, the words were lit up in blue! I clicked the link and found this community. Believe me i was excited!

I recently got to see these films because i got too impatient to find out about these classic films and put them up at the top of my Netflix que! LOL! Now im enthralled with the whole universe!

I think it has soemthing to do with the trilogy being incomplete. I like to tell stories and not having one finished drives me crazy!!! I found out this guy who made them is still alive, i had assumed he had died and thats why the trilogy remains unfinished to this day. Id like to see the third movie made. If not by him, someone close to him that would treat the franchise with care.

I think i heard in one of the dvd interviews or something that Argento didnt like all the new technology that was coming out or something like that. So maybe he didnt think he could give his third movie the special look that he felt it needed? I dont know.

Anyway, im happy with what ive got anyway. Look forward to chatting with you all! :)
