Spain’s Art Mood picks up trio

'Bella,' 'Princess' and 'Boudu' deals closed at AFM

BARCELONA — Maria Jose Solera’s Art Mood, one of Spain’s up-and-coming indie distribution houses, has taken Spanish rights to three titles: “Bella,” “Princess” and “Boudu.”

All deals were closed at this month’s American Film Market.

“Princess,” helmed by debutant Anders Morgenthaler, is produced by Zentropa and opened Directors Fort-night in Cannes. Pic is a telling portrait of the sex industry.

The Gerard Jugnot helmed “Boudu,” which is a remake of the Jean Renoir classic “Boudu Saved From Drowning,” is toplined by Gerard Depardieu, Catherine Frot and Gerard Jugnot himself.

“Bella” is the feature debut of Mexican helmer Alejandro Gomez Monteverde which tells the story of a soccer player who retrains as a cook. It won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival.

Founded by Solera in 2002, Barcelona-based Art Mood began by specializing in the international distri-bution of feature film documentaries, such as the Oscar nominated “Balseros.” Since last year, however, it has stepped up its acquisition of fiction feature films for Spain.
