Bavaria Film Intl. has picked up world rights to Cannes Intl. Critics Week screener “Komma.” Directed by Belgium’s Martine Doyen, it tells the story of 50-year-old Peter (Belgian singer and film composer Arno Hintjens, in his movie debut), an imposter who takes on the identity of a dead man and later convinces a young amnesiac (Valerie Lemaitre) that he is part of her life.
Doyen penned “Komma,” her feature directorial debut, with lead actress Lemaitre.
Pic’s co-producers include Paris-based OF2B Prods., Brussels’ La Parti Production and Movie Stream Filmed Entertainment, Belgian broadcasters RTBF and Be-TV. Project received backing from the Centre du Cinema et de l’Audiovisuel de la Communaute Francaise de Belgique and the Teledistributeurs Wallons as well as the EU’s MEDIA Program and the Centre National de la Cinematographie de Paris.
