Wild Side takes ‘Agnosia’

Filmax rolls out berlin hit

MADRID — Wild Side Films, one of France’s most reputed distributors, has taken all French rights to romantic period thriller “Agnosia,” sold by Filmax Intl.

Wild Side looks set to put the film, now in post-production, through Le Pacte for theatrical distribution, following its longterm distrib arrangement with Jean Labadie’s production-distribution and sales company.

A specialist in DVD distribution of upscale titles, Wild Side will handle Gallic home entertainment and TV sales directly.

“Agnosia’s” sale to Wild Side rolls off upbeat results for the Filmax produced and sold “REC” and “REC2,” which Wild Side acquired for France. “REC 2” grossed a first-four week Euro2.7 million ($3.7 million) in France, bucking the trend for horror films to underperform in Gaul.

Directed by Eugenio Mira, “Agnosia” closed Germany with Square One, the U.K. with Momentum and Canada with Alliance at the Berlin Fest’s European Film Market.

“Agnosia” has sold to further distributors, often leading players in their territories, such as Mexico’s Corazon Films, Portugal’s Lusomundo, its biggest indie, Lap TV for Latin American pay TV and Pascual Condito’s Primer Plano for Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay and Chile.

Film Depot has taken CIS, ITI Cinema Poland.

Starring Eduardo Noriega (“Vantage Point”) and Martina Gedeck (“The Lives of Others”), “Agnosia” is produced by Telecinco Cinema (“Pan’s Labyrinth,” “The Orphanage”), Roxbury (“Hierro”) and Madrugada Films (“Verbo”).
