CANNES: ‘Le Meraviglie’ Sells to France and Latin America (EXCLUSIVE)

Ad vitam has acquired the French rights to “Le Meraviglie” (The Wonders), the second feature from Alice Rohrwacher, which is in Cannes’ competition. Brazil-based Alfa Filmes has picked up all Latin American rights. The Match Factory is selling the film in Cannes.

Ad Vitam released Rohrwacher’s debut feature, “Corpo Celeste,” which premiered at Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight in 2011.

“Le Meraviglie” is about a father who wants to keep his family together and retain the traditions of country life, while his daughter desires the world on TV shows.

The cast includes Sam Louwyck (“Bullhead”), Alba Rohrwacher and Monica Bellucci.

The film was produced by Italy’s Tempesta with Rai Cinema, in co-production with Amka Films Prods. in Switzerland and Pola Pandora in Germany.

“Alice is an exceptional director with a unique cinematographic language, and I’m sure ‘Le Meraviglie’ will be warmly embraced by the audience,” said Michael Weber, managing director of the Match Factory.
