EXCLUSIVE: Paris-based Other Angle also adds sales on heist caper The Last Diamond.
Paris-based Other Angle has picked up sales on Mona Achache’s romantic comedy Les Gazelles, about a 30-year-old woman readjusting to single life after splitting from her long-term boyfriend.
It is Achache’s first feature-length film since award multiple award-winner The Hedgehog.
Les Gazelles stars actress and stand-up comedian Camille Chamoux [pictured] in the lead role with support from Audrey Fleurot, best known internationally as the gay, redheaded secretary in Intouchables, and Josephine de Meaux. The film is loosely based on Chamoux’s one-woman show Camille Attaque.
Mathias Rubin of Recifilms, who was a partner on the Jean Dujardin-starrer Mobius, produces with support from Orange Studio. The film will be released by Paramount in France.
Other new titles on Other Angle’s AFM slate include Philippe Lacheau’s found-footage comedy Babysitting, piecing together the chaotic turn of events that ensues when a young executive agrees to look after his boss’s unruly son.
The company will also continue sales on romantic jewellery heist caper The Last Diamond starring Berenice Bejo opposite Yvan Attal. Recent sales of the picture include to Germany (Vero Film), Russia (Volga), Benelux (Alternative) and Turkey (Calinos).
