Soda Pictures has acquired Christian Petzold’s “Phoenix” for the United Kingdom following its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.

Petzold teams up with actors Nina Hoss and Ronald Zehrfeld in the drama about a concentration camp survivor trying to rebuild her life after the war, having lost almost everyone and everything important to her.

The deal was negotiated by Eve Gabereau of Soda Pictures, and Brigitte Suarez and Michael Weber of the Match Factory.

Soda Pictures released Petzold’s last film “Barbara” in 2012, and The Match Factory has a long history of selling Petzold’s films internationally, including “Barbara,” “Jerichow” and “Yella.”

“Phoenix” will play in competition at the upcoming San Sebastian and BFI London Film Festivals, and will be released in the U.K. and Ireland in 2015.
