Cannes: Marco Bellocchio’s ‘Sweet Dreams’ Starring Berenice Bejo Sells to 15 Territories (Exclusive)

18 May 2016 6:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Match Factory has sold Marco Bellocchio’s “Sweet Dreams,” which opened Directors’ Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival, to more than 15 territories across the globe. The film stars Valerio Mastandrea and Berenice Bejo, who was Oscar nominated for “The Artist.”

“As a great admirer of Marco Bellocchio’s work, I am happy to work with him again since our first cooperation last year on the presentation of his remastered cult classic ‘Fists in the Pocket’ and ‘Blood Of My Blood’ in Venice Competition,” said Michael Weber, managing director of The Match Factory.

Based on the best-selling novel “Sweet Dreams, Little One” (Fai bei sogni) by Massimo Gramellini, “Sweet Dreams” is the story of a long search for the truth and the fear of discovering it.

Massimo’s (Mastandrea) idyllic childhood was shattered by the mysterious death of his mother. As he prepares to sell his parents’ apartment, he is haunted by his traumatic past. »

Of course last year Italy had new works by Cannes regulars Nanni Moretti, Paolo Sorrentino, and Matteo Garrone vying for the Palme d’Or.

This year veteran Italo auteur Marco Bellocchio’s “Sweet Dreams” didn’t make the cut.

The program is recruiting international academics, professionals and a select group of students in various fields that besides film include architecture, journalism, and digital communication.
