COLOGNE — Tom Tykwer’s costume drama, “Perfume: The Story of a Murderer,” has received E820,000 ($980,000) from two European sources.
The pic, starring Alan Rickman and Dustin Hoffman, got coin from pan-European funder Eurimages and the German-French Support Commission.
The two bodies lined up $6 million for 15 international co-productions in recent allocation sessions.
Other German-French productions receiving support are Claude Chabrol’s “Comedie du pouvoir” (Comedy of Power) starring Isabelle Huppert, and debut pic by Christian Ditter, “Exchange,” a coming-of age story of a student on an exchange trip.
Eurimages also gave coin to Swedish helmer Roy Andersson’s “You, the Living”; to Marion Haensel’s “Chamelle,” an allegory about an African tribe’s search for water; to Alain Berliner’s “Gene Astaire,” a tragicomedy about male dancers; and to Swiss helmer Daniel Schmid for “Portovero.”
