The deal with sales agent Entertainment One includes the global airline rights.

TORONTO -- Entertainment One has sold Sebastien Pilote's Le Demantelement to Film Movement for the U.S. market.

The U.S. distributor also picked up the global airline rights to the Gabriel Arcand-starrer that won the SACD prize in Cannes before screening at the Toronto Film Festival this week.

The French-language family drama follows a man who sells his farm after his daughter in the big city asks for money to avoid losing her home.

Le Demantelement also stars Gilles Renaud, Lucie Laurier and Sophie Desmarais.

"We are so happy to be working with eOne again on a truly beautiful film, the kind of independent original work we love to champion," Film Movement president Adley Gartenstein said in a statement Wednesday.
