Italy's Mikado, Spain's Golem among buyers

“The Class” (Entre les murs) has generated spirited early Cannes sales. Memento, the Paris-based sales and distribution company, sold the Laurent Cantet-helmed film’s rights to Italy’s Mikado, Spain’s Golem, Greece’s Ama Films, Benelux’s Cineart, MegaCom for the former Yugoslavia, Brazil’s Imovision, U.K.’s Curzon Artificial Eye, Korea’s Jinjin and United King in Israel.
