Le Pact sold on ‘Innocence’

Distrib takes French, int'l sales rights on Hrebjek thriller

Paris-based arthouse company Le Pacte has snatched up French distribution and international sales rights to Jan Hrebejk’s high-concept psychological thriller “Innocence.”

Pic, which toplines Ondrej Vetchy, Ana Geislerova and Ludek Munzar, centers on a respected surgeon whose life collapses when he’s framed in the rape of a teenage patient.

Hrebejk’s previous film, “Kawasaki’s Rose” bowed in 2009 at Berlin, where it won the CICAE (Intl. Federation of Art Cinemas) nod and the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury.

“Innocence” was released January in the Czech Republic by Bonton Film and had a great run at the box office.

“Hrebejk belongs to a new breed of Czech auteurs who are able to make films that have a strong international appeal,” said Camille Neel, topper of international sales at Le Pacte. “‘Innocence’ is a polished, multi-layered thriller with a great production value.”

Produced by In Film Praha and Infinity Prague, pic has played at various fests, notably at the Montreal World Film Festival.

Le Pacte’s slate includes Michale Boganim’s “The Land of Oblivion” and John Shank’s “Last Winter,” which are playing at Venice and Toronto.
