Sweden's NonStop Sales has added a trio of high profile local titles to its Mifed slate.
From leading producer Sonet Film it has added Miffo, a romantic comedy about a priest who should not be feeling the way he does, directed by Daniel Lind Lagerlof. The film makes its market premiere at Mifed, despite having been released in Sweden to great success (just under 500,000 admissions) in April and having travelled to the Hollywood and Montreal festivals.
NonStop has also boarded Slim Susie, a gangster comedy by Ulf Malmros. Currently on release through Sandrew Metronome, the film has already garnered admissions exceeding 250,000. It tells the tale of a former beauty queen (Tuva Novotny) who goes missing, and the crazy chase that ensues.
Buddy, another romantic comedy, this time from Norway, completes the list of newcomers. The film, directed by Morten Tyldum, depicts a man who achieves unsought fame after his video diaries end up on TV. It appeared in competition at Montreal this year, having previously picked up the audience award at Karlovy Vary. Buddy has been sold to Sandrew Metronome for Scandinavia, Ascot Elite for Switzerland, Bright Angel for Benelux, Black Lion for Poland, SPI for the Czech and Slovak republics and Cirko Films for Hungary.
