director-star's crowd pleaser, which premiered in the Cannes Quinzaine last year, has sold steadily throughout the year.
Here at the EFM, French company Roissy Films has announced another deal on the title. Joint Entertainment has now taken the film for Taiwan.
Caramel is a romantic comedy-drama set in a women's hairdressing salon in
Beirut. Its title comes from a specific way of removing hair from women's bodies, using a heated concoction of sugar, water and lemon juice.
Roissy has done very brisk business on Labaki's film which has also been
widely feted on the festival circuit. The film, being released in the UK by Momentum, was recently chosen as part of the programme of this month's Glasgow Film Festival.
