Masiela Lusha and the Time of the Comet

The ravishing, sizzling and vivacious Masiela Lusha is back again as Agnes in the yet to be released romantic comedy ‘Time of the Comet’. But hold on guys; don’t start fantasizing as she is playing a Catholic nun in love with a Muslim rebel. Based on a book of the same title by the internationally acclaimed Albanian writer Ismail Kadare, it’s a film that Masiela can be proud of. Set in the backdrop of war torn Albania and the subsequent World War II, it narrates the beautiful story of a young woman on her way to become a nun against her wishes.

Masiela was last seen on the silver screen in 2007 with her powerful portrayal of Araceli in the documentary ‘Muertas’. This time she has an author backed role and if the inside sources are to be believed, Lusha has given a power-packed performance by expressing beautifully the inner conflicts of Agnes as well as her vulnerabilities to the core. Even the writer Ismail Kadare has appreciated her work in the movie.

It has got an international star cast with Blerim Destani donning the role of the Muslim rebel and the famous German actor Thomas Heinze appearing as King Wied. This film, though already released in Macedonia, is set to hit the theatres in USA in October, this year. One of the highlights of the movie is Masiela Lusha being tied on a crucifix. So fans of Masiela, gear up to watch her giving a stunning performance if not a sensual performance.
