UK distributor Peccadillo Pictures has picked up Joachim Lafosse’s Our Children (A Perdre La Raison), which stars Emilie Dequenne (who just won the best actress prize for Un Certain Regard.) The film also stars Tahar Rahim and Niels Arestrup.
The deal was done with Les Films du Losange.
Also in Cannes market, Peccadillo also acquired Eytan Fox’s Yossi from Films Distribution; David Lambert’s Beyond The Walls from Films Boutique; and Ira Sachs’ Keep The Lights On also from Films Boutique.

These titles represent the best of world cinema, and we look forward to bringing them to UK audiences across multiple platforms throughout 2012 and 2013.”
