Italian arthouse distributor Mikado has added three new titles to its line-up, including Manoel de Oliveira's Cannes contender The Uncertainty Principle.
An entangled family drama adapted from the novel by Agustina Bessa-Luis, The Uncertainty Principle tells the story of the wealthy Antonio, played by Ivo Canelas, and Jose Luciano (Ricardo Trepa), the disreputable son of domestic servant Celsa (Isabel Ruth).
Meanwhile, Mikado has also scooped Tony Gatlif's (Gadjo Dilo, Vengo) latest title Swing, which screened in the Panorama section of this year's Berlinale. In the film, Gatlif again explores his gypsy roots through the story of Max, a 12-year-old who is enamoured with gypsy music.
The third new acquisition for Mikado is upcoming Locarno title Cuore Napoletano, an Italian documentary by Paolo Santoni which traces classical Neapolitan music which is still sung and played both in the US and in Naples.
