Palm Pix nabs rights to Cannes winner

Film follows forgotten photog in Copehagen

Palm Pictures has acquired U.S. rights to Danish director Christoffer Boe’s drama “Reconstruction,” which premiered last month at the Cannes Film Festival, where it won the Camera d’Or award for first feature.

Taking place over 24 hours in Copenhagen, the film follows a young photographer whose life is thrown off balance when he returns home after a passionate one-night stand to find that his friends, family and girlfriend no longer recognize him.

Nikolaj Lie Kaas (“Open Hearts”) and Marie Bonnevie (“I Am Dina”) star in the pic, which played in the Intl. Critics Week selection at Cannes and also won the Label Regards Jeunes youth prize.

Head of acquisitions and production David Koh and head of theatrical distribution Ryan Werner brokered the acquisition for Palm, with sales exec Sanne Arlo representing Nordisk Film Intl. Sales.

Eyeing spring release

” ‘Reconstruction’ was the most exciting film we saw this year at Cannes,” said Koh and Werner. “It’s a profoundly beautiful meditation on the nature of love and the cinema, made with complete assurance by a knockout talent who has a long career ahead of him.”

Palm plans a spring 2004 theatrical release, with DVD launch to follow in the fall. The company also picked up Caribbean rights.

Currently in release, Palm has Thai duo the Pang brothers’ supernatural chiller “The Eye,” maverick multimedia artist Matthew Barney’s “Cremaster Cycle” and Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakur’s mordant family comedy “The Sea.”
