Menemsha ‘Springs’ for pic

Film stars 'Jacob' thesp Brodsky

Menemsha Entertainment has acquired world rights, excluding Czechoslovakia, to Czech feature, “Autumn Spring” by Vladimir Michalek.

Film stars Vlastimil Brodsky, the award-winning actor who starred in the original 1974 “Jacob, the Liar,” the German pic that was remade in 1999 and starred Robin Williams.

“Sping” focuses on a 75-year-old man whose eternally young attitude inspires everyone around him.

Michalek’s previous films include “Angel Exit,” “Prague Stories” and “America.”

In the U.S., Menemsha prexy Neil Friedman will either offload the picture to a high-end art house distrib or release it himself.

Friedman will present the film for competition slots at the fall films fests in Montreal, Toronto and New York.

Menemsha sold practically all territories to the 2002 Academy Award-nominated Argentine film “Son of the Bride.”

“Autumn Spring,” one of the top 10 grossing pics in Spain with more than 1.5 million admissions, sold to Germany (Movienet), Italy (Medusa), Benelux (Les Films de l’Elysee) as well as to distribs in Latin America, Greece, Turkey, Israel and Portugal.

Film will screen at the Munich Film fest at the end of June and the Edinburgh Film Fest in late August.

“Great films always sell, no matter what the economy is,” Friedman told Variety.

Menemsha also sold “Hitler’s Secretary” to most European territories. Sony Classics, which owns North American and Mexican rights, will release the documentary at the end of the year in the US.
