News from Berlin: Kino Picks Up Hot "Lady Chatterley," and "Crossing the Line"
0

Just hours after Dennis Lim called Pascale Ferran's "Lady Chatterley" "at once the most adventurous and the most conventionally satisfying" film at Berlin so far (in indieWIRE today), indie distrib Kino International announced its U.S. acquisition of the film. Reporting from Berlin, Lim wrote "the nearly three-hour 'Lady Chatterley' is as much a return-to-nature parable as 'Old Joy' or 'Blissfully Yours.' As a period portrait of feminine self-discovery, it's as psychologically dense and thoroughly modern as Arnaud Desplechin's 'Esther Kahn.'"

In France, where the film has logged nearly a quarter million admissions since its November release, it has already won the Prix Louis Delluc for best French feature of 2006, the Lumiere awards for best actress and director, and is nominated for nine Cesars including best picture.

Kino also announced its acquistion of the documentary "Crossing the Line," a provocative chronicle of an American army defector's four decades inside North Korea, which premiered at last year's Pusan festival.
