Artificial Eye has closed two more acquisition deals on competition titles from last month’s Berlinale – both of which are co-productions between France and Italy that are being sold by French international sales companies (see news) .
The UK distributor picked up rights to Jacques Rivette's Don't Touch the Axe [+see also:
