Film Movement has acquired Cesar Charlone and Enrique Fernandez' Uruguayan comedy The Pope's Toilet and plans a limited release in October followed by DVD roll-out in 2009.

The story centres on the people of a small town who prepare to capitalise on an upcoming visit from the Pontiff.

The Pope's Visit played in official selection at Cannes in 2007 and has won several awards including the Sao Paolo International Film Festival's International Jury Award and the Horizons Award at San Sebastian.

Film Movement president Adley Gartenstein brokered the deal with Stefanie Zeitler of Bavaria Film International.
