Wide Management takes international rights to Jacek Borcuch’s Sundance competition title
French sales outfit Wide Management has acquired international rights to Polish director Jacek Borcuch’s drama All That I Love, which was in Sundance’s World Cinema Dramatic Competition and also screened in the Spectrum section at last week’s Rotterdam International Film Festival.
The company is also holding the market premiere of another pick-up Aluizio Abranches’ From Beginning To End (Do Comeco Ao Fim), an unconditional love story between two half brothers starring Joao Gabriel Vasconcelos and Rafael Cardoso.
In addition, Wide will be screening a 60-minute rough cut version of Laure Charpentier’s Gigola, with a cast including Lou Doillon, Eduardo Noriega, and Marisa Berenson. The drama focuses on a well-known character from 1960s Pigalle, an area of Paris, and is based on Charpentier’s controversial bestseller of the same name.
The line-up also includes Jean-Paul Jaud’s documentary Severn’s Children, which is currently in post-production. The J+B Sequences production is the sequel to Jaud’s successful 2008 film That Should Not Be which took more than $2.7m (€2m) at the French box-office last year.
Buyers can also view a teaser for Jung and Laurent Boileau’s animation feature Approved For Adoption, which has been selected as one of the projects for this year’s Cartoon Movie co-production market in Lyon. Shooting is scheduled to begin this August, with Cineart already onboard as theatrical distributor for the Benelux.
