CANNES: Seville Intl. Picks Up Denys Arcand’s ‘An Eye for Beauty’

CANNES – Entertainment One Films Intl.’s newly-launched boutique sales arm Seville Intl. has acquired international rights to Denys Arcand’s “An Eye for Beauty.”

The company also confirmed that it will distribute the film directly in Quebec and Canada, where it will be released theatrically on May 15. The film will screen privately for buyers at Cannes.

Arcand, whose film “The Barbarian Invasions” won the foreign-language film Oscar, also wrote the screenplay for the film, which is produced by Cinemaginaire’s Denise Robert.

The film, which stars Eric Bruneau, Melanie Thierry, Melanie Merkosky and Marie‐Josee Croze, tells the story of Luc, a young architect with remarkable talent who lives a peaceful life with his wife Stephanie in the stunning area of Charlevoix. One day, he accepts an invitation to be a member of an architectural jury in Toronto. There, he meets Lindsay, a mysterious woman who will turn his life upside down.

“I fell in love with this film for its beauty and for its accurate portrayal of the 30-something generation,” said Anick Poirier, VP, international sales, Seville International.

Launched earlier this year, Seville Intl.’s Cannes line-up includes “Mommy” from Xavier Dolan, which is in competition, “Tu Dors Nicole,’ in Directors’ Fortnight, and “Ma Ma,” starring Penelope Cruz.
