'Mammoth,' starring Gael Garcia Bernal, gets a frosty reception in Berlin

February 9, 2009 |  9:15 am

"Mammoth," the new movie from Swedish director Lukas Moodysson featuring the Mexican film star Gael Garcia Bernal, got a frosty reception at its first press screening at the Berlin International Film Festival on Sunday, reports Reuters.

The movie is set in multiple locations and languages, shifting from New York to the Philippines and Thailand. Garcia Bernal stars as a computer game tycoon who is married to an overworked emergency room doctor played by Michelle Williams, and the film shows how their 8-year-old daughter grows up much closer to the Philippine nanny than to the parents.
