Pyramide International has announced strong pre-sales on Catherine Corsini's Leaving at the European Film Market in Berlin.

Metrodome acquired the film for the UK with Lumiere taking it in Benelux, Gussi in Mexico and Alfa in Argentina. A deal for Australia and New Zealand is imminent, according to the French sales house while buyers in the US, Germany, Italy and Spain are circling.

Starring Kristin Scott Thomas, Sergi Lopez and Yvan Attal, Corsini's work is a drama about a woman who leaves her comfortable married life for the man with whom she has fallen passionately in love - despite the trouble it will stir. Leaving is said to be a tribute to the work of Francois Truffaut. It is set for delivery in May.
