Fliegauf, who won a Golden Leopard in Locarno in 2007 for his experimental pic “Milky Way,” will begin production on the film in March on the North Sea coast.

“‘Womb’ is one of the most touching and impressive love stories we have read in recent times,” said Michael Weber, managing director of the Match Factory, which is handling international sales on the pic.
