Transmission embraces ‘Nymphomaniac’

TrustNordisk adds Lukas Moodysson's 'Vi ar bast' to AFM slate

Transmission Films has nabbed distribution rights in Australia and New Zealand to Lars von Trier’s erotic drama “Nymphomaniac,” which TrustNordisk is preselling at the AFM.

Transmission previously released Von Trier’s Antichrist and Dogville, when they ran the distrib Dendy. Their slate includes such titles as Andrea Arnold’s “Wuthering Heights” and Michael Haneke’s “Amour.”

Nymphomaniac” previously sold to France (Les Films du Losange), U.K./Ireland (Artificial Eye), Benelux (Wildbunch), Greece/Cyprus (Seven Films), Germany/Austria (Concorde), CIS (Central Partnership), Czech Rep./Slovakia (AeroFilms), ex-Yugoslavia (Cinemania Groupicon), Poland (Gutek Film), Estonia (Estin Film), Lithuania/Latvia (Acme Film), Romania (Independenta Films´97), Bulgaria (Art Fest) and Brazil (California Films).

The ensemble cast is led by Charlotte Gainsbourg and Stellan Skarsgard, and also includes Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman, Willem Dafoe and Udo Kier.

The film, which is produced by Zentropa’s Louise Vesth, recounts the erotic life history of a nymphomaniac, played by Gainsbourg.

Also on TrustNordisk’s slate is a pic from another Scandinavian enfant terrible, Lukas Moodysson.

“Vi ar bast,” which has just started lensing in Sweden, is a feel-good teen drama, which evokes the same spirit as his 1998 debut “Show Me Love.”

It stars three newcomers, Mira Barkhammar, Mira Grosin and Liv LeMoyne. David Dencik plays one of the adult roles.

Moodysson, whose last pic was 2009 Berlinale competish entry “Mammoth,” penned the script for the $5 million-budgeted “Vi ar bast.”

“It’s a film for all 12 year olds, all who have ever been 12, and all who’ll turn 12,” said Moodysson, who rarely makes media appearances.

Pic is produced by Lars Jonsson at Memfis Film; co-producers are Film I Vast, SVT and Zentropa.

Svensk will bow the pic in Sweden late next year.
