Specialising in "elevated genre", French international sales agent Reel Suspects managed to get through 2020, a complicated year for us all on account of the health crisis. Indeed, it inked some great deals for the thriller Ropes [+leggi anche:

In addition, Matteo Lovadina’s team is about to play another trump card with Out of This World by Marc Fouchard, which will have its market premiere at the 23rd Rendez-Vous with French Cinema in Paris, an event that, in a change to the usual procedure, will be organised online by Unifrance from 13-15 January (via a dedicated secure site on Cinando).
Out of This World, the second feature by the French filmmaker, following Break [+leggi anche:

scheda film]). Also among the cast are Geneviève Casile, June Assal, Jean-Louis Garçon, Claire Ganaye, Dominique Frot, Leslie Carles, Patrick Fouchard, Martin Pautard and Tadrina Hocking.
Written by Marc Fouchard himself, the story revolves around Léo, a very shy man who has trouble communicating with others. Only music makes him feel alive and more open-minded. However, he cannot afford to live off his music, and so he works as a taxi driver and lives in his own car. One day, Léo picks up Amélie, a deaf dancer. He seems charmed by her, and Amélie is also attracted to him.
Produced by Julien Russo and Gilles Commaille for Dacor Productions (a company that is staging its first feature with this title), Out of This World sees Pascal Boudet on board as DoP and Cyesm in charge of the score.
