Berlin 2013: 'Northwest' Sells to U.K., France, Benelux
Michael Noer's crime drama premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam.
BERLIN - Northwest, the new crime drama from Danish director Michael Noer has proved a strong seller for TrustNordisk at this year's European Film Market, with a trio of big all-rights deals for the title: with French distributor BAC Films, Arrow Films in the U.K. and Benelux distributor Wild Bunch.
Set in Copenhagen's rough northwest neighborhood, the feature follows two brothers as they fight to climb the ladder of organized crime. Newcomers (and real-life brothers) Gustav Dzekjaer Giese and Oscar Dyekjaer Giese star.
Noer's first feature -- the prison drama R -- was well received and sold strongly worldwide.
Northwest premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam before heading to Berlin.
