TORONTO: Bruno Dumont's Comedy 'Li'l Quinquin'

Kino Lorber has acquired all U.S. rights to Bruno Dumont’s comedy “Li’l Quinquin” ahead of its North American premiere in the Contemporary World Cinema section at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival.

The murder mystery — originally aired as a four-part miniseries — will have its U.S. premiere at the 52nd New York Film Festival where it is programmed as a special event screening.

“I’ve been involved in releasing Bruno’s films since the very beginning and though he never ceases to amaze me, I never expected to fall out of my chair laughing,” said Richard Lorber of Kino Lorber.

The film screened at Cannes in the Directors’ Fortnight as a four-part miniseries. Variety’s Scott Foundas called it “hilarious” in his review.
