The colorful and striking group of actors that make Lost Valentine include Jurgita Jurkutė, Algirdas Gradauskas, Agnė Jagelavičiūtė, Vidas Petkevičius, Asta Baukutė, Vaidotas Martinaitis, Vaidas Baumila, Karina Stungytė, Skaiva Jasevičiūtė, Mindaugas Stasiulis and Aistis Mickevičius, and will guarantee unforgettable, familiar and real emotions, as well as a pleasant warmth that everyone sometimes so yearns for.
No shortage of challenges in making the sequel
“We’ve been working on this film very intensively; even though we’re releasing the trailer late, the success of last year’s Single Valentine just showed that the audience curiosity and intrigue was justified. In the end, the comedy became the most viewed Lithuanian film of the year; the Lost Valentine trailer had hundreds of thousands of views online, and the title became one of the most searched phrases in the Lithuanian Google search engine,” said Žilvinas Naujokas, the movie’s producer.
Donatas Ulvydas, another Lost Valentine producer, confirmed that production of the second film was more complicated than the first, and demanded quite a lot more creativity and resources. “The loss of Vytautas Šapranauskas, who played the main character in the first movie, really shook us up and affected the plans for the movie at first. He was supposed to contribute to the second movie from the very beginning of its development. Another compelling reason was the scenario. The Single Valentine scenario was purchased from Canadians and adapted, which took less time, but this time our loyal collaborator Jonas Banys wrote an original screenplay for Lost Valentine, with the help of film director Evaldas Kubilius and assistant Ugnė Barauskaitė,” he explained.
According to the makes of the film, Lost Valentine will contain subtle erotica, but the main focus is on human relationships, sincerity, and both stereotypical and unique situations, so the public will be able to assess a more sensitive and deeper romantic comedy.
