Intramovies nabs ‘Best Things’

Company to kick off sales at Ventana Sur

Italy’s Intramovies has acquired world rights to Brazilian coming-of-ager “As melhores coisas do mundo” (The Best Things in the World), which Warner Bros. co-produced and released in Brazil.

Helmed by Lais Bodansky (“The Ballroom”), “Best Things” will kick off international sales at the Ventana Sur Latin American Film Market in Buenos Aires on Dec. 3-6.

Set in Sao Paulo and based on the locally popular “Mano” book series, “Best Things” concerns a middle-class 15-year-old boy struggling with sexuality and his parents’ divorce.

The deal was negotiated during the Rome Film Festival last month by Intramovies topper Paola Corvino and producer Fabiano Gullane, who heads Gullane Filmes, which co-produced the teen pic with Warner Bros. Pictures, Brazil’s Casa Redonda and Buriti Filmes.

For Intramovies, which recently sealed a slew of deals on Italy’s foreign-language Oscar candidate, “The First Beautiful Thing,” by Paolo Virzi, this deal is proof that the Rome-based outfit is increasingly looking for product beyond Italo borders.
