Berlin: Film Movement Takes U.S. on ‘Ardennes’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Robin Pront’s debut adds to Belgium’s cannon of gritty crime thrillers

BERLIN — New York-based Film Movement has acquired all U.S. rights to Toronto Discovery player “The Ardennes,” Robin Pront’s first feature film. Pic stars Veerle Baetens ( “The Broken Circle Breakdown”) and Jeroen Perceval (“Bullhead”).

Produced by Savage Film’s Bart Van Langendonck, whose credits include Michael Roskam’s “Bullhead,” and a new entry in a burgeoning line of gritty Flemish family crime sagas, “The Ardennes” narrates a tale of betrayal between two working class criminal brothers, which erupts in unexpected violence.

Arthouse genre, one of the dominant trends in international’s newest cinema, “Ardennes” was written by Perceval and Pront, adapting Perceval’s screenplay.

“’The Ardennes’ is raw and powerful,” said Film Movement’s prexy Michael E. Rosenberg, who closed the U.S. pick-up with Xiaojuan Zhou, president of Attraction Distribution. “We look forward to introducing fans of ‘Bullhead’ and ‘Borgman’ to a strong new voice in Belgian cinema.”
