TrustNordisk has already confirmed early deals on Pernille Fischer Christensen’s Someone You Love, which has its world premiere as a Berlinale Special Gala on Tuesday.

Deals have been done for Australia and New Zealand (Madman), Spain and Andorra (Golem), Benelux (Wildbunch), Korea (Atnine), Turkey and Cyprus (Umut Sanat Filmcilik) and Hong Kong (Edko Films).

Mikael Persbrandt, Trine Dyrholm and Birgitte Hjort Sorensen star in the story of a musician who gets a chance to improve his life after a tragic accident. Christiansen wrote the script with Kim Fupz Aakeson.
