Feature Film: "Lisa Limone and Maroc Orange: A Rapid Love Story"

After what has seemed like a drought of Stop Motion feature films over the past year or so we finally get some news!  Lisa Limone and Moroc Orange: A Rapid Love Story, is a 72 minute Stop Motion opera.  Yes, you heard me right.  Opera!  It would seem that this Estonian flick is breaking ground in the Stop Motion world.  From what we can see in the trailer, it is a beautifully animated film featuring  fruit-heads on top of human bodies, a very interesting concept.  The plot:
"Main hero is a singing boat refugee – orange boy Maroc. He dreams about freedom.
Lemon girl Lisa collects singing seashells and dreams about love.
Lisa’s father is a businessman, owner of a ketchup factory and tomato plantation. He loves money.
And so the opera begins:
Poor Maroc escapes from his homeland and defying stormy waters take a boat across the sea to the “promised land”. Upon arrival he is forced being a slave worker in a tomato plantation instead of freedom, democracy, wealth and parties he had hoped for.
Despite of initial let down our orange boy is destined to gain happiness – selfish Lisa falls in love with him and sets him free. We see orange revolution – houses are blown up and tomatoes are made from ketchup, all in the name of democracy!
Movie that is full of rebellion and love has happy ending - we will see sour-sweet culmination of lemon girl's and orange boy's love."
