Toronto: Imagina Grabs Global Sales Rights to ‘Bambi,’ ‘Wound’

6 September 2013 6:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Scooping up two awaited Spanish titles, Madrid-based Imagina International Sales has closed world sales rights to the Sony-distribbed “Who Killed Bambi?”, the latest film from “The Orphanage” producer Rodar y Rodar, as well as Fernando Franco’s “The Wound,” the only debut film in competition at the fast-approaching San Sebastian Festival.

A Nov. 17 Sony Pictures Espana release in Spain, “Bambi” receives a Toronto market screening. Toplining Ernesto Alterio (“Clandestine Childhood”), Quim Gutierrez (“Dark Blue Almost Black”) and Clara Lago (“Fin”), “Bambi” is a bungled kidnap comedy helmed by Santi Amodeo, director of two quirky mid-decade dramas — “Astronauts” and “Doghead” — that is loosely inspired by Mexico’s “Matando Cabos.”

Imagina sales director Geraldine Gonard describes it as a dark screwball comedy. “Bambi” marks “a move towards the mainstream” for Amodeo, per Rodar producer Joaquin Padro.

In “The Wound,” Franco delivers an intimate portrait of a woman battling a borderline personality disorder. »

Title: Clandestine Childhood Director: Benjamín Ávila Starring: Natalia Oreiro, Ernesto Alterio, César Troncoso, Teo Gutiérrez Romero, Cristina Banegas, Douglas Simon, Violeta Palukas, Marcelo Mininno, Mayana Neiva. When abuse of power and violence take over, the crossroads between ideals and the safeguard of your loved ones is inevitable. The Argentinian director, Benjamín Ávila, was inspired by his personal infancy in the making of this historical film, set during the “Dirty War,” the time of state terrorism in Argentina. ‘Clandestine Childhood’ portrays the story of a married couple of Montoneros (the organisation fighting against the Military Junta ruling the country) living in Cuba with their two children, who manage, through the help  [ Read More ]

‘Clandestine Childhood’ a film about wartime displacement and coming-of-age

17 January 2013 1:21 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Clandestine Childhood

Directed by Benjamín Ávila

Argentina, 2011

Philadelphia Film Festival

Benjamín Ávila’s debut feature is a fine balance of youthful longing and militant resistance.

Ernesto (Teo Gutiérrez Romero) has two names. One name – Ernesto – is for his schoolmates, but he goes by Juan at home. His parents also have two names. Horacio goes by Daniel (César Troncoso) and Cristina by Charo (Natalia Oreiro). It’s Argentina in 1979, and five years after Perón’s death, Horacio, Cristina and charismatic Uncle Beto (Ernesto Alterio) continue the fight against the existing regime through violent tactics.

Using a mixed-media strategy where moments of extreme violence are depicted through graphic animations, Ávila’s film keeps the focus firmly on Juan and his budding relationship with a classmate’s sister, María (Violeta Palukas).

Romero’s surprisingly tender and mature performance recalls the two great Ana Torrent roles from the 1970s in Spirit of the Beehive and Cria Cuervos. »
