EXCLUSIVE: Bulgarian tragi-comedy is from the award-winning directors of The Lesson.


I Wonder Pictures has acquired Italian rights to Bulgarian tragicomedy Glory about a railway worker who discovers a small fortune on the train tracks but is not rewarded in the way he would have desired.

Paris-based Wide Management is handling sales on the film by directorial duo Kristina Grozeva and Petar Valchanov, whose previous film The Lesson won multiple awards on the festival circuit, including San Sebastian’s Kutxa Award for best new director.

Bologna-based distributor I Wonder Pictures recently distributed The Brand New Testament in Italy, where it grossed $1.5m (€1.3m).
