Bavaria sells pic rights

'Grill Point,' 'Tattoo' bought

BERLIN — Bavaria Film Intl. has sold a string of films, including Berlin Intl. Film Festival favorite “Grill Point,” to a number of territories after last month’s screenings at the American Film Market in Los Angeles.

Company sold “Grill Point,” which picked up the Berlinale’s grand jury prize, to Russia’s Maywin Media and to Brazil’s Estacao Cinema e Cultura. Bavaria is also in advanced negotiations to sell the pic to a French distrib.

“Tattoo,” a mystery thriller directed by Robert Schwentke about two jaded cops on the trail of a killer who collects rare Japanese tattoos, sparked interest in Hong Kong and South Korea, where Intercontinental and Bear Entertainment acquired the film.

‘Important territories’

“We had hoped the film would do well in Asia. We are very happy that our expectations have been surpassed with these two important territories,” said Thorsten Schaumann, Bavaria’s head of sales. Company is also in “promising” negotiations with additional Asian distribs, he added.

Bavaria’s Latin American-European co-production “En la Puta Vida” (Tricky Life) from Uruguayan director Beatriz Flores Silva also was picked up by Maywin Media and Puerto Rico’s Wiesner Distribution.
