Wide’s two Latin American gay-themed dramas, Enrique Buchichio’s “El cuarto de Leo ” and Jose Campusano’s “Vil romance,” were nabbed by U.K.’s TLA Releasing. International sales topper Anais Clanet said TLA is planning a spring theatrical release.

In Berlin, Wide Management will show a 60-minute rough cut of Laure Charpentier’s “Gigola.”

Set in the Parisian red-light district, the film is based on Charpentier’s erotic novel. Lou Doillon, Eduardo Noriega, Marisa Paredes and Marisa Berenson topline.

Recently acquired by South Korea’s World Cinema, the film is a co-production between Gaul’s Marie Emilie Prods., Belgium’s MG Films and Spain’s Mate Cantero.

Wide’s latest acquisitions include Polish helmer’s Jacek Borcuch’s “All That I Love,” which screened at Sundance and Rotterdam, and Brazilian director Aluizio Abranches’ coming-of-age drama “From Beginning to End.”
