France Cranze’s critically acclaimed chamber drama “Mass,” is ready to travel to many regions sold by Paris-based apparel kinology (“Annette,” “Ahed’s knees”). The movie world premieres in Sundance and the new director is playing in San Sebastian.
Debuting in Cranje’s screenplay and direction, “Mass” was released a few years after the tragic shooting and revolves around two sets of parents – victims and criminals – who agree to meet and talk in person in an effort to move forward.
Since the film began international sales in June, Kinology has sold it in Australia / NZ (Madman), Scandinavia (Nonstop), Spain (La Aventura), Taiwan (Hurray), Poland (Galাপpagos), Middle East (front row) and CIS. . (Exponenta). “Mass” was previously acquired for the United States (Blicker Street), Canada (MK2 Miles End), Latham (Sun) and the UK (Sky). The CAA and the Gersh Agency represent U.S. rights. Crane Casey co-produced the film with Wilder Mott, JP Wellett and Dylan Matlock.
“Mass” has been unanimously praised by critics. Variety’s Owen Gleiberman writes in his review, “Mass” can be described as a talk-therapy thriller made from a memory একটি a psychodrama, a meditation and a blessing, all at the same time. “The writing is so clever, and the actors are so committed, that in the end you’ll feel like you’ve touched the burning core of a reality,” he said.
Led by Gregor Melin, there were four films running in the Kinology Ears competition, two of which won awards – Best Director for “Annette” by Lewis Caracas with Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard; And Nadav shared the jury award for Lapid’s “Ahed’s Knee”.
