French sales company Bac Films has secured sales on high-concept picture A Bun In The Oven, starring Karin Viard (Delicatessen) as a middle-aged woman who discovers she is pregnant. 

The film, which is in post-production, has sold to Germany (Wild Bunch), Benelux (Cinéart) and Switzerland (Impuls Pictures).

“We’ve had a lot of interest purely on the basis of the script,” said Bac sales chief Gilles Sousa who has new images of the film at EFM.
