Berlin: Buyers Check Into Moland’s ‘In Order Of Disappearance’

New deals on Berlin competition contender include France, Benelux and Poland

BERLIN– A raft of buyers have checked into Hans Petter Moland’s Berlin competition contender “In Order Of Disappearance.”

Sold by TrustNordisk, “Disappearance” has been acquired for France and Andorra (Chrysalis Films), Benelux (Wildbunch), Turkey and Cyprus (Umut Sanat Filmcilik), Hungary (Vertigo), Poland (M2 Films), Romania (Independenta Film ´97), Estonia (Estin Film).

Previously announced deals include Germany and Austria (Neue Visionen), UK (Metrodome), Albania, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia & Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia (Continental Film), Czech and Slovakia (Film Europe) and South Korea (Atnine).

“The high demand for Hans Petter Moland’s “In Order of Disappearance” underlines his position as a star director. This film proves again that Moland is a masterful filmmaker who excels in creating quirky and dark Nordic comedies with great sales potential both locally and internationally,” says TrustNordisk CEO Rikke Ennis.

Pic is an action-comedy turning on Nils (Stellan Skarsgard) who drives a snow blower and has a carefree life in snow covered Norway, until his son’s death suddenly puts him in the middle of a drug war between the Norwegian mafia and Serbian criminals.

Skarsgard stars opposite Bruno Ganz (“Downfall”), Pal Sverre Hagen (Kon-Tiki), Birgitte Hjort Sorensen (“Borgen”), Kristoffer Hivju (“Game of Thrones”) and one of this year’s Berlin Shooting Stars Jakob Oftebro (“Kon-Tiki”).

Moland competed in Berlin in 2004 with “The Beautiful Country” and in 2010 with “A Somewhat Gentleman.”

“Disappearance” was produced by Finn Gjerdrum and Stein B. Kvae at Norwegian shingle Paradox.

Pic will world-preem in Berlin on the 10th and will be released in Scandinavia by Nordisk Film Distribution on Feb. 21.
