Curious Distribution has picked up Matteo Garrone’s film Reality which won the Grand Prix at Cannes Film Festival Competition.

The announcement:

Curious Distribution has announced the acquisition of the Cannes Film Festival Competition Grand Prix-winner Reality and Director’s Fortnight selection Granny’s Funeral.

Reality was acquired from Fandango Portobello and Granny’s Funeral from Wild Bunch.

Reality is written and directed by Matteo Garrone, whose acclaimed earlier film Gomorrah also won the Grand Prix at Cannes four years ago.  The film is a biting satire on reality television and Italian culture.  The film garnered strong critical reviews from Cannes.

Insidemovies said:  “(a)… visionary dissection of an Italian society….(Reality) ..is the rare movie that has some of that old, classic Fellini insanity in its overheated blood.”

Granny’s Funeral is delightful French comedy about love, life and death directed by Bruno Podalydès  and co-written by Bruno with his brother Denis Podalydès. »
