SND sells ‘Animals’ to Revolver

Pic is scored by Philip Glass

PARIS — Pushing business on multiple fronts, French sales company SND/M6 has sold U.K. rights on “Animals in Love” to Revolver.

Scored by Philip Glass, “Animals” is the first nature docupic from Laurent Charbonnier, who broke through as a cinematographer on 2001’s “Winged Migration,” the pic that blazed a trail for exquisitely-shot nature features to be sold as popular theatrical entertainment.

The Revolver deal almost concludes worldwide sales on “Animals.” Of major territories, only the U.S. remains outstanding, said SND international sales exec Gregory Chambet.

The licensing pact comes as SND mops up smaller territory pre-sales on a new pick-up, Graham Guit’s “Hello Goodbye,” which stars Gerard Depardieu and Fanny Ardant.

The pairing is familiar — Depardieu and Ardant toplined Truffaut’s “The Woman Next Door” — but the pic’s setting, for French films, is not: the romantic comedy plays out in Israel where Depardieu and Ardant, an on-the-rocks Jewish couple, relocate after their son marries a Catholic girl.

First territories closed are Russia, Poland and Romania; Benelux is in advanced talks.

China’s HGC, Greece 7 Films, Yugoslavia Padora and Eastern Europe’s Radiovision have taken Guillaume Nicloux’s twisting thriller “The Key,” toplining Guillaume Canet, director-star of international hit “Tell No One.”

SND continues to roll on Florent Siri’s Toronto screener “Intimate Enemies,” a gritty drama following a French platoon during Algeria’s war of independence. Latest major territories sold are: the U.K. (Contender), Germany (Atlas) and Japan (Twin).
