Among them were FilmNation’s Sing Street, the 1980s Irish coming-of-age tale from John Carney (Once, Can a Song Save Your Life?), which was nabbed by Studiocanal for Germany and Two Days, One Night, the latest from two-time Palme d’Or winners Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne (L’Enfant), which Wild Bunch and Alamode Film jointly acquired for the territory.
Sing Street, described as a semi-autobiographical tale and set to the music of U2, was one of the few true buzz titles at Berlin this year. Set to begin shooting in Dublin this summer, the film tells the story of 14-year-old would-be rockstar Cosmo, who is desperate to escape his messed-up family life.
Two Days, One Night stars Marion Cotillard as a woman trying to convince her colleagues to renounce their annual bonuses so she can keep her job. It’s currently in postproduction and is expected to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
