Cannes buyers are eager to join Thomas Vinterberg‘s The Commune.
Vinterberg’s upcoming drama, about the clash between individualism and solidarity in a 1970s Swedish commune, sold to multiple territories, including Spain (Golem), Korea (Challan), Russia (Silver Box) and Switzerland (Praesens Film). TrustNordisk is handling international sales on the film.
The Commune previously sold to France (Le Pacte), the U.K. (Artificial Eye) and German-speaking Europe (Prokino), among other territories.
In a Better World stars Ulrich Thomson and Trine Dyrholm lead The Commune‘s ensemble cast, which also includes Fares Fares (Child 44) and Lars Ranthe (The Hunt).
The Commune marks the third collaboration between Vinterberg and co-screenwriter Tobias Lindholm, following Submarino (2010) and The Hunt (2012), the latter of which won Cannes’ best actor honor for lead Mads Mikkelsen en route to a foreign language Oscar nomination.
