THINKFilm International arrives in Cannes buoyed by a sales slate that includes Alex De La Iglesia's new thriller The Oxford Murders starring Elijah Wood and John Hurt, about a series of killings in the English university town that are seemingly related to mathematical symbols.

The line-up continues with Five Dollars from director Nigel Cole (Calendar Girls) in which Christopher Walken plays a conman who takes a road trip with his estranged son.

Geoffrey Haley's The Last Word stars Wes Bentley and Winona Ryder in a romantic comedy about a professional composer of suicide notes who falls for the sister of one of his late clients.

The roster includes worldwide rights excluding Italy, France and Benelux to Daniele Luchetti's crime caper Mio Fratello E' Figlio Unico (My Brother Is An Only Child) - a rare Italian festival entry this year that screens in Un Certain Regard. The film has grossed more than $4.9m in Italy through Warner Bros Pictures International.

THINKFilm International chief Eve Schoukroun and head of sales David Fenkel will also introduce to buyers the market premiere of Tony Kaye's abortion documentary Lake Of Fire, which screened in Toronto last year.

Sales will continue on Robinson Devor's bestiality documentary Zoo, which has been selected for Director's Fortnight following its world premiere at Sundance.

'Berlin was the time to introduce our new vision to international buyers,' Schoukroun said, 'As we now approach Cannes, we have put together the kind of diverse and impactful slate that we promised our distribution partners.'
