CANNES — Notro Films Intl. has licensed its Cannes 2006 Directors’ Fortnight player, “Honor de cavalleria” (Honor of the Knights), to the U.K.’s Soda Films.
It has closed at this year’s Cannes with Victory Prod. for Benelux.
Distrib 791 has taken Argentina in negotiations initiated after “Honor” screened at March’s Mar del Plata Festival.
A free re-interpretation of “Don Quixote,” whose scenario is inspired as much by scenery as the novel — think Cervantes meets Abbas Kiarostami — “Honor” has already sold to France’s Capricci.
