France’s Other Angle has announced the acquisition of Back To Square One, a comedy produced by Alain Goldman.
Other Angle will screen the Lionel Steketee-directed film in Cannes.
In the film, Fabrice Eboué, Thomas N’Gijol - who also wrote the script - play step-brothers who are dissatisfied with their inheritance. When their father dies in the French West Indies, their reaction to the bequeath hits a wrong note with an old aunt who sends the pair back in time, to the slavery period where they are forced to stick together in order to free themselves from the plantation.
Mars Distribution is releasing in France on July 6.
