Garrone’s ‘Reality’ racks up sales

Cannes Grand Prix winner goes to Spain, Australia, Russia, Brazil

Matteo Garrone’s “Reality” has been sold in multiple foreign markets on the heels of winning the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival.

Deals were disclosed by sales outfit Fandango Portobello on Monday, a week after Oscilloscope announced it had acquired U.S. rights.

Sales were finalized in Spain (Wanda Vision), Australia (Curious), Portugal (Midas Filmes), Russia (Cinema Prestige), the former Yugoslavia (Demiurg), Brazil (Mares Film), Greece (Seven Films), Poland (Film Point Group) and Hungary (Suez).

The film tells the story of a Neapolitan fishmonger who supplements his modest income by pulling off little scams together with his wife. His unexpected and sudden obsession with being a contestant on the reality show “Big Brother” leads him down a rabbit hole of skewed perceptions and paranoia.

The film is an Italian-French co-production between Archimede-Fandango, Le Pacte-Garance Capital with RAI Cinema. It was produced by Garrone and Domenico Procacci, producer of “Gomorrah,” with Jean Labadie co-producing for Le Pacte, which will also distribute in France.

Garrone’s previous film, “Gomorrah,” won the Grand Jury Prize in Cannes in 2008.
