Independent Italian distributor Archibald Enterprise Film has picked up Claudia Llosa's Berlin Golden Bear winner The Milk Of Sorrow from German sales agent The Match Factory.

In a separate deal, Milan-based Officine Ubu has taken distribution rights to Michael Winterbottom's drama Genova from HanWay.

Genova stars Colin Firth as an Englishman who moves to Italy with his two daughters to start a new life after his wife unexpectedly dies in a car accident. Shot on location in Italy in 2008 it won the Silver Seashell award for best director at San Sebastian last year where it had its world premiere.

Both The Milk Of Sorrow and Genova will see their theatrical releases in Italy in May.
