Berlin: Drama ‘The Confessions’ Starring Toni Servillo Closes Global Deals

True Colours, the new Italian sales outfit founded by Lucky Red and Indigo Film, has sealed a slew of sales at EFM for Italo helmer Roberto Ando’s political thriller “The Confessions,” toplining Toni Servillo (“The Great Beauty”) and boasting a stellar international cast.

True Colours’ topper Catia Rossi has sold “The Confessions” to Spain (Wanda); Latin America inluding Brazil (CDI with Mares); South Korea (JinJin Pictures); Benelux (Imagine); Greece (Danaos); Hungary (Cinenuovo);  former Yugoslavia (Stars-Media); and Taiwan (Swallow Wings).

Servillo plays a mysterious monk called to a high-powered G8 meeting by the International Monetary Fund head, played by Daniel Auteuil, to receive his confession. Cast also comprises Connie Nielsen, Lambert Wilson, Marie-Josee Croze, Pierfrancesco Favino and Moritz Bleibtreu.

Pic, believed to be a meditation on power and wealth inspired by “The Confessions of St. Augustine,” is an Italian-French co-production with Angelo Barbagallo’s Bibi Film, Gaul’s Barbary Film and Italy’s Rai Cinema. It got a hefty 550,000 euro ($623,000) subsidy from Italy’s Mibact government funding entity.

“The Confessions,” which is now in post, will be released in Italy by 01 Distribution and in France by Bellissima Film.

Ando in 2013 scored a local hit in Italy with political dramedy “Viva La Liberta,” also toplining Servillo.
