Spain fest seduces ‘Songs’

Pic's explicit sex scenes caused talk in Cannes

Michael Winterbottom’s controversial sex movie “9 Songs,” which premiered in the market at Cannes, has been invited to the San Sebastian Film Festival in late September.

Pic, whose explicitness is thought to be unprecedented for a movie from a major director, features full-on bedroom action including fellatio, cunnilingus and ejaculation. Its Cannes screenings caused a furor in the British press.

With Tartan Films already in place as the pic’s U.K. and U.S. distrib, sales agent Wild Bunch has started lining up deal in other territories, including an Australian sale to Accent Film Entertainment.

While “9 Songs” has yet to be submitted to ratings boards in any country, Accent is no stranger to conflict with the censors, having battled with Australia’s Film Classification Review Board over its release of Gaspar Noe’s “Irreversible.”
