Other Angle acquires Argento’s Incompresa

Other Angle acquires Argento’s Incompresa
Exclusive: Paris-based sales company to hit Croisette with a trio of Official Selection titles, which also includes Keren Yedaya’s That Lovely Girl and The Go-Go Boys.

Other Angle Pictures has acquired international rights to Italian actress and director Asia Argento’s Incompresa ahead of its premiere in Cannes’ Un Certain Regard.

The feature, Argento’s third, is loosely inspired by her childhood as the daughter of the genre maestro Dario Argento and actress Daria Nicolodi who collaborated on classics such as Suspiria and Inferno before going their separate ways.

French-Anglo actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, another child of famous parents who has been a friend of Argento since meeting on the set of the 2000 mini-series Les Misérables, plays the lead Italian-language role, based loosely on Nicolodi.

“We really believe in this film… it’s special, very emotional and personal, with nuances of the cinema of Sophia Coppola and Paolo Sorrentino,” said Other Angle co-chief Olivier Albou.
