Miramax does boffo int’l biz at AFM

Miramax Films’ international sales have exceeded expectations by 50% and reached $ 11 million during the American Film Market, according to Miramax Intl. prexy Ian Jessel.

Best sellers were the Matthew Broderick starrer “The Night We Never Met” and the Jamie Lee Curtis thriller “Mother’s Boys,” both in post-production.

All-rights deals for both were inked during the AFM with Penta for Italy, UIP for Spain and Roadshow Distribution in Australia.

For Germany, Senator Films picked up all rights to “Mother” and Neue Constantin signed for romantic comedy “Night.” Japan’s Shochiku also acquired all rights for “Mother.”

Presales on Robert Altman’s critique of the Paris fashion industry “Pret-A-Porter” are slow, but Jessel said the $ 15 million budget (double that of indie hit “The Player”) has jacked up prices per territory. Nonetheless, Senator signed for Germany and Filmauro inked for Italy.

Two Oscar noms for John Sayles’ “Passion Fish” led Italy’s Rizzoli, France’s Les Films No. 1 and Germany’s Concorde to pick up the Mary McDonnell/Alfre Woodard starrer.
