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. »

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).
