UK distributor Metrodome has acquired all UK rights to Argentinian director Alejandro Agresti's comedy, Valentin.

The deal was negotiated with Kathy Morgan International acting for First Floor Features. Metrodome has scheduled the film, which was picked up by Miramax Films, for a February release.

Newcomer Rodrigo Noya stars as the titular hero, a ten year old boy living with his grandmother in 1969 Argentina who sets about realising his dreams of becoming an astronaut.
