Ahead of this year's American Film Market, Switzerland's Ascot Elite Entertainment Group has picked up all German language rights on three titles.

The new acquisitions are:

Olivier Assayas' erotic thriller Boarding Gate, starring Asia Argento and Michael Madsen, from Magnet;

Andrew Currie's satirical comedy Fido, with Carrie-Anne Moss, Billy Connolly and Dylan Baker, from Lionsgate;

and Hungarian Janos Szasz's drama Opium - Diary of A Madwoman, bought from H20 Motion Pictures, which stars newcomer Kirsti Stubo and Denmark's Ulrich Thomsen and will be screening in competition at the FilmFestival Cottbus next month.
