Film Movement Goes "Monster" and "Cheek" in North America

By Indiewire | Indiewire June 6, 2006 at 9:01AM

Film Movement has acquired North American rights to Norwegian writer/director Arild Ostin Ommundsen's "Monster Thursday," and Indian director Mani Ratnam's "A Peck on the Cheek," the company's president Stuart Litman announced Tuesday. According to Film Movement, "Monster Thursday" centers on Even, a young man who leads a directionless life. Tord, his best friend, is the opposite: a great surfer with a prestigious job and beautiful Karen as his bride who Even secretly desires. When Tord asks him to look after Karen while he is out of town, Even decides to clean up his act and master the waves to impress her." The film screened in competition in the world cinema-dramatic category at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival. "Peck," meanwhile, is the story of a little girl's seach for her biological mother who abandoned her as a newborn. The distribution deal for "Monster Thursday," which covers all rights in the United States and English-speaking Canada, was negotiated on behalf of Film Movement by director of acquisitions, Adley Gartenstein and by Karin Thun, on behalf of NonStop Sales AB. The distribution deal for "A Peck on the Cheek," which covers the same territory, was negotiated on behalf of Film Movement by Gartenstein and by Stuart Strutin on behalf of Panorama Entertainment Corp.
