On the production of Similo:
Similo started as a simple yet ambitious idea: to make a realistic science fiction love story. The combination of these two aspects, “science fiction” and “realism”, was quite an exciting challenge for us.
We love sci-fi films that showcase some of the political and sociological issues that we’re going through right now: climate change, wealth concentration, consumerism, human isolation…
Similo has been, without a doubt whatsoever, the most challenging of all the projects we’ve done so far.
We started developing the film back in 2005 but due to the complexity of the project, it took us several years to raise the money. In order to get attention from different producers, we decided to shoot a teaser in 2006. That little piece got a lot of attention in the filmmaker community and received excellent reviews.
In the end, Macgregor took control of the production and spent every penny he had to make the film. Between the summer of 2007 and 2009 principal photography was completed.
