Cannes 2012: Indomina Buys U.S. Rights to Competition Film 'Holy Motors'
The movie, written and directed by Leos Carax, stars Eva Mendes, Kylie Minogue and Michel Piccoli.
The Indomina Group has acquired U.S. distribution rights to French drama Holy Motors, which is part of the Competition of the Cannes Film Festival.
The movie, written and directed by Leos Carax, stars Michel Piccoli, Denis Lavant, Eva Mendes and Kylie Minogue.
The film chronicles a few hours in the life of Monsieur Oscar, a shadowy character who journeys from one life to the next. "He is, in turn, captain of industry, assassin, beggar, monster, family man," a description of the film says. "But where is his true home, his family, his rest?"
“Leos Carax is a masterful filmmaker," said Indomina vice chairman and CEO Jasbinder Singh Mann. "His unique, singular vision is something that cannot be overlooked in today’s marketplace. The film really stays with you after you’ve left the cinema – a testament to not only a brilliant story but amazing direction and performances."
Rob Williams, Indomina’s vp of acquisitions, negotiated the deal with Carole Baraton of Wild Bunch, which is handling international sales for the film. The film is a French-German co-production.
