Sandra Nettelbeck's Mostly Martha has been picked up by Ottfilm for theatrical distribution in its native Germany. The film was originally included in Kinowelt's lineup for release this month.
Kinowelt's mounting financial problems, however, persuaded producer Karl Baumgartner of Pandora Film to take back the film back to offer to other distributors. It will now be released by Ottfilm through its distribution agreement with UIP on April 11, 2002.
Paramount Classics for North America, other English-speaking and Latin American territories.
It stars Martina Gedeck as Martha, a top chef who opens her kitchen to a high-spirited Italian (played by Sergio Castellito).
Internationally Mostly Martha is represented by Bavaria Film International.
