Coproduction Office sells ‘Delta’

Film won Cannes Fipresci award

MADRID — Paris-based Coproduction Office has closed a tranche of sales on its four Cannes Official Selection players, underscoring the increasing importance of upbeat reviews and a Cannes berth in an ever-tougher art pic market.

“Delta,” about an incestuous relationship between a brother and sister, has been bought by Le Pacte for France, Eureka Pics for South Korea, Silenzio in Spain and Look Now! for Switzerland.

Hungarian Kornel Mundruzco’s third feature, “Delta” won the Fipresci (Intl. Federation of Film Critics) award on Saturday for best Cannes Competition film.

Benelux’s Lumiere and Filmmusueum bought “Delta” and a second Coproduction Office offering, “Involuntary,” Swedish first-timer Ruben Ostlund’s multi-stranded fresco of social antagonism.

Also well-reviewed, Antonio Campos’ Un Certain Regard contender, prep school-set “Afterschool,” clinched France with CTV. Eureka Pics took South Korea; Silenzio bought Spain again.

As already announced, Brit distributor Network closed the U.K. on “Afterschool” and another Coproduction sales slate highlight, Thomas Clay’s second film, “Soi Cowboy.”

All the four titles were snapped up by Mexico’s Cinematografica, India’s Alliance Media Ent. and Greece’s Seven Films, a prolific buyer at Cannes.

Meanwhile, Focus sold Pedro Almodovar’s Penelope Cruz starrer “Broken Embraces” and Lucrecia Martel’s “The Headless Woman” to Sandrew Metronome.

Latter company’s other pick ups also included Kevin Tancharoen’s “Fame” and Nia Vardalos’ “I Hate Valentine’s Day” from Lakeshore; James Toback’s “Tyson” from Wild Bunch; Grant Heslov’s George Clooney starrer “Men Who Stare at Goats” from Mandate; Werner Herzog’s Nicolas Cage starrer “The Bad Lieutenant” from Nu Image and Andrew Jarecki’s Ryan Gosling starrer “All Good Things” from the Weinstein Company.
