Constantin Film of Germany has become the latest high profile buyer to sign on for Celluloid Dreams' Swimming Pool.
The film by 8 Femmes director Francois Ozon, which is currently in post production, is a Chabrolian thriller starring Charlotte Rampling as a disillusioned British publisher who travels to France and is bewitched by a younger woman, played by Ludivine Sagnier. Celluloid, which is screening a showreel of the picture, expects to close a US deal by the end of MIFED.
Tanja Meissner, sales manager, said: 'We've had an incredible reaction to the film and most of the distributors who took Francois' 8 Femmes have been back for more.'
Swimming Pool, produced by Ozon's regular production house Fidelite Productions and British producer Timothy Burrill, has already been sold to Gaga for Japan, UGC for the UK and Cinemien for Benelux. Other buyers on board include Imovision for Brazil, Taewon for Korea, Film Co-operative for Switzerland, Bim for Italy, Rosebud for Greece, Chantier for Turkey, Intercinema for Russia and Cine Fiolm for Argentina.
