Aiming to broaden its scope beyond pure French fare, Olivier Albou's Paris-based Other Angle has acquired international sales to German helmer Jonathan Helpert's "House of Time," Francois Margolin's "The Art Dealer" and Stefano Consiglio's "L'Amore non perdona."
Produced by Fabio Conversi's Babe Films, "Amore" tells the tale of an impossible love story between a nurse in her 60s and a young Arab laborer.
"House" turns on a billionaire whose guests test a time-traveling machine. "I's a genre movie, a psychological thriller with a time travel twist," Albou said. "It's also in closed setting and takes place over hours."
"Dealer" follows a Jewish woman who embarks on a journey to recover family paintings that were stolen by the Nazis. Produced by Margo Cinema, "Dealer" stars Michel Bouquet, Robert Hirsch, Francois Berleand and Niels Schneider.u
"Art Dealer" and "Amour" are in post, while "House" will shoot in March.
