Pic is a 19th century-set film starring Judith Chemla as a young aristocrat from the French provinces determine to experience life to the fullest in a story spanning 20 years. “A Woman’s Life” also stars Swann Arlaud, Jean Pierre Darroussin and Yolanda Moreau.

Meanwhile, “Lost in Paris,” a dramedy produced by CG Cinema, has been acquired for the U.S. (Oscilloscope), Sweden (Triart), the former Yougoslavia (MCF megacom), Turkey (Bir Films) and South Korea (Green Narae).
