The Paris-based shingle Other Angle has closed a raft of sales on “A Good Doctor,” a French comedy that is having its market premiere on Thursday at the American Film Market.
Directed by Tristan Séguéla, “A Good Doctor” stars French actor Michel Blanc as Serge, a visiting doctor who is tired after 20 years of service and sends a food delivery guy (Hakim Jemili) to visit his patients for him on Christmas Eve. The film also stars Solene Rigot and Franck Gastambide.
Other Angle has sold the film to Germany (Square One), Italy (Medusa), Canada (AZ films), Brazil (Pandora), Belgium (Vertigo) and Switzerland (Pathé). Apollo will release the film in France on Dec. 11.
