Italian arthouse distributor-producer Mikado has acquired local distribution rights to two critically acclaimed films: Kim Ki-duk's Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter'And Spring and Peter Webber's acclaimed Girl With A Pearl Earring.

Spring, Summer was sold by Cineclick Asia and Bavaria Films, while Girl was sold by Pathe International UK.

Meanwhile, Mikado is currently also involved in the production of acclaimed theatre director Mario Martone's new picture L'Odore Del Sangue (The Taste Of Blood). Co-produced by Mikado and Rome's Bianca Film, The Taste Of Blood is currently in post-production and stars Fanny Ardant and Michele Placido as two fifty-year-olds who each have a relationship with a younger lover.

Mikado is also a co-producer on Italian comic Vincenzo Salemme's new film I Saw the Stars (Ho Visto le Stelle) which stars Claudio Amendola, and Silvio Soldini's highly anticipated bittersweet comedy, Agata And The Storm.

Mikado's distribution slate includes Evilenko, starring Malcolm McDowell.
