‘French Family’ closes sales

Wide Management snags bevy of territory deal

Paris-based Wide Management has closed a bevy of key territory deals on Pascal Arnold and Jean-Marc Barr’s dramedy “Sexual Chronicles of a French Family.”

Pic was snatched up by IFC Films for North America, Metrodome for the U.K., Pierrot Le Fou-Alamode for Germany, Fine Films for Japan and Line Tree Entertainment for South Korea. Deals cover all rights.

Clementine Hugot, Wide Management’s head of international sales and acquisitions, said she was closing Russia and has received offers from other territories.

Pic, which will screen at the EFM today and Monday, deals with a French family that’s turned upside down when the youngest child is caught masturbating in biology class.

Wide Management has also taken international sales rights to Serbian Maja Milos’ feature debut “Klip,” a Rotterdam standout that nabbed the Tiger Award and the Dutch film critics’ KNF nod, and caused some controversy with its depiction of postwar Serbian teens. Film House’s Bas Celik produced. Hugot’s team has sold the pic to Vladimir Kokh and Gregoire Marchal’s French distribution outfit KMBO. Wide Management will host “Klip’s” EFM screenings on Monday and Tuesday.
