The Indomina Group has acquired U.S. distribution rights to Leos Carax’s French drama “Holy Motors” on the heels of its screeninng in official Cannes competition.

“Motors” stars Michel Piccoli, Denis Lavant, Eva Mendes and Kylie Minogue. The announcement was made in Cannes on Sunday by Indomina Group vice chairman and CEO Jasbinder Singh Mann.

Carax directed from his own script, chronicling a few hours in the life of a shadowy character who journeys from one life to the next. He is, in turn, captain of industry, assassin, beggar, monster and family man.

Rob Williams of Indomina negotiated the deal with Carole Baraton of Wild Bunch, which is handling international sales for the film.

“Holy Motors” was produced by Martine Marignac through Pierre Grise Productions with funds from the CNC, Ile-de-France region, Arte France, Canal+ and Cine+. The film is a German co-production through the company Pandora, and also received funds from the Franco-German co-production support committee.
