Gaul’s Films Distribution has taken worldwide rights outside mainland China to “Chongqing Blues,” the latest movie from Wang Xiaoshuai (“In Love We Trust”).

Films Distribution sold Berlin 2008 Competition player “Trust.”

Its pickup comes as the Paris-based sales company continued to push out sales on a range of titles, including a sale at Berlin to Japan’s Shochiku on Daniel Monzon’s Goya winner “Cell 211.”

Produced by Hsu Hsiaoming, Hsu Bingshi and Wang for Tempo Films and WXS Prods., “Blues” toplines Wang Xueqi, Fang Bingbing, Qin Hao, Zi Yi and Li Fei.

The drama turns on a father’s investigating the death of his estranged son in a supermarket robbery.

Films Distribution will present “Blues” at Cannes.

Wang Xiaoshuai is very good at showing the changing of the world, relations between generations: His main themes are all in this movie,” said Films Distribution partner Nicolas Brigaud-Robert.

“Blues” was well-received at the Paris Project co-prod forum last July.

Scandinavia’s CCV also took “Cell 211” at Berlon, while Atalanta Filmes took Portugal.
