Lucky Red has pre-bought the Italian distribution rights to Lars Von Trier's first horror film Antichrist as well another film from Trust Film Sales - How To Get Rid Of The Others by Anders Rønnow Klarlund.

Trier is enjoying something of a renaissance in Italy. His last film The Boss of it All has notched up around 200.000 admissions and still going strong there.

Meanwhile, Lucky Red bought Cao Hamburger's The Year My Parents Went On Vacation along with three other members of the Indie Circle distribution network - Switzerland's Frenetic Films, Belgium's Cineart and France's Haut et Court.

Films Distribution is handling sales of The Year My Parents Went On Vacation in Berlin and also closed a deal this afternoon (Sunday) with Spain's Vertigo with sales pending to Taiwan and Japan.
