Amrion prepares One More Croissant
by Annika Pham
Riina Sildos’ Amrion Production plans to start shooting Ilmar Raag’s new film One More Croissant – starring French leading lady Danièle Darrieux and Estonia’s Laine Mägi – in early 2010.
Raag made his breakthrough with his debut feature The Class [+see also:

The €2.7m film is produced by Sildos in co-production with Agnes Feuvre (TS Productions) in France. “Raag is currently in Paris preparing the film and we’re negotiating with a French actor to join the cast,” said Sildos.
The 2007 Producer on the Move and head of Baltic Event is also working on a new animated film based on the popular character Lotte the dog. The new feature film Lotte and the Moonstone Secret will be made by the same creative and financial team behind the previous, successful Lotte from Gadgetville [+see also:
film profile]: directors Heiki Emits and Janno Põlda and Latvian co-producers Rija Films. The €3.7m project will be sold once again by Sola Media, which licensed Lotte from Gadgetville to approximately 50 territories.
Sildos’s protégé Rene Vilbre is preparing a new project for her while his I Was Here [+see also:
film profile] (Estonia’s number one local film in 2008 with over 46,000 admissions) is being negotiated for world distribution by US sales agent Shoreline Entertainment.
