PARIS — Paris-based sales outfit Wide Management has closed a raft of sales across its slate.
Deals, which were announced Thursday at the Unifrance Rendez-Vous in Paris, included Jacek Borcuch’s coming-of-age drama “All That I Love” to Orlando Films (Israel), Lou Doillon starrer “Gigola” to Bounty (Australia), and Rajko Grlic’s comedy “Just Between Us” to Best Digital (Taiwan) and IFA (Argentina).
Laure Charpentier’s “Gigola,” which is screening at Rendez-Vous, will bow in France on Jan. 19, while “Just Between Us,” which won the Europa Cinema nod and best director for Grlic at Karlovy Vary, will unspool on March 19 in France. “All That I Love,” which played at Sundance, Rotterdam and Chicago, will open in Gaul on April 22.
Wide has made a few additions to its slate.
One is Polish helmer Lech Majewski’s “The Mill and the Cross,” which will world preem at Sundance in the New Frontier section, and will also play at Rotterdam film fest in the Spectrum Section. Starring Charlotte Rampling, Michael York and Rutger Hauer, the pic is inspired by Pieter Bruegel’s 1564 masterpiece, “Christ Carrying a Cross,” and focuses on a dozen characters from the painting.
Wide also has just taken sales rights on Pascal Arnold and Jean-Marc Barr’s “American Translation,” which turns on a tumultuous love affair between a 20-year-old serial killer and his girlfriend. It is now in post.
Another addition is Dominique Maillet’s “La Memoire dans la chair,” which follows a man who returns to Spain after 15 years in exile to attend the funeral of his father, a victim of Franco’s regime.
At the Unifrance RDV, Wide also is screening Frederic Sojcher’s docu-thriller “Hitler in Hollywood,” which played at Venice and Montreal, and Jean-Paul Jaud’s docu “Severn, la voix de nos enfants.” “Hitler in Hollywood’s” Gallic release is set for May 4.
