France's MK2 has secured several sales on Claude Chabrol's upcoming film Merci Pour Le Chocolat. Among distributors that have recently taken the film are Italy's Mikado, Canada's Remstar, Spain's Wanda, Greece's Robebud and Belgium's Les Films de L'Elysees.

Concorde/Telemuenchen had already bagged German rights to the title - which stars Isabelle Huppert and Jacques Dutronc and is currently in post-production - prior to Cannes.

MK2 has also enjoyed brisk sales on Michael Haneke's Cannes competition title Code Unknown which has been sold to some twenty countries, including Italy (Bim), Spain (Vertigo) and Belgium (Cineart).

A US deal is pending for another of MK2's Cannes titles, Iranian film-maker Bahman Ghobadi's Golden Camera-winner A Time For Drunken Horses, which has been sold in seven territories, including Italy (Lucky Red), Belgium (Progres) and Switzerland (Look Now).
