Senator, BAC take 'Moscow, Belgium'

Bavaria Film boasts host of other sales

CANNES -- Senator Film in Germany and BAC in France have pounced on Christophe van Rompaey's romantic comedy "Moscow, Belgium," acquiring rights in their respective territories for the Critics Week's title from Bavaria Film International.

Bavaria also racked up a series of sales with South Korea's Sejong Communications, which picked up Til Schweiger's rom com "Rabbit Without Ears" and the period epic "Buddenbrooks." "Rabbit" also went to Singapore (Festive), Taiwan (Swallow Wings) and Greece (Seven Group).

Bavaria's Swedish vampire film "Let The Right One In," was also a strong seller, going to Karma in Spain, Daisy Entertainment in South Korea, Parchamama for Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay, Lighthouse Pictures in Singapore and Seven Group in Greece. Thomas Alfredson's tale of a school nerd who falls in love with a vampire, won the Best Narrative Prize at Tribeca and the Nordic Film prize in Goteborg. Magnolia's Magnet label picked up U.S. rights for "Let The Right One In" at the European Film Market in Berlin.
