Film Movement has acquired domestic distribution rights to Klaus Haro's 2006 Finnish foreign language Oscar submission Mother Of Mine from Nordisk Film Sales.

The film recounts little-known events of the second world war, when more than 70,000 children were evacuated to Sweden, Denmark and Norway.

Topi Majaniemi, Maria Lundqvist, Marjaana Maijala, Michael Nyqvist, and Esko Salminen star. Jimmy Karlsson and Kirsi Vikman co-wrote the screenplay.

Film Movement's president Adley Gartenstein negotiated the deal with Nordisk's Arloe Sanne.

'Mother Of Mine is an extraordinary film that all of our fans will enjoy, whether they view it in their local theatre, in their living rooms through our DVD-of-the-Month Club or on television, or at one of the over 1,000 libraries that showcase the Film Movement Series,' Film Movement chief executive officer Stuart Litman said.
