French cinema aficianados will be happy to know that Kino Lorber has just acquired all rights to "Tip Top," Serge Bozon's entry into the 2013 Cannes Film Festival Director's Fortnight. The film will now be making its way stateside with an upcoming New York premiere at Rendez-Vous with French Cinema, an annual film festival focused on the best of new French cinema organized by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and UniFrance.

"Tip Top" combines screwball comedy, film noir and social commentary in the way that only French cinema could. The film stars national treasure Isabelle Huppert ("The Piano Teacher") and Sandrine Kiberlain ("Mademoiselle Chambon") as two Cagney & Lacey-style detectives investigating the death of a former Algerian cop working as a police informant in the town of Villeneuve.

"This film just knocks your socks off with its unpredictably smart and zany narrative turns - and the zinging chemistry between Huppert and Kiberlain is a pleasure to behold," notes Richard Lorber.

The film marks Kino Lorber's second acquisition of a Serge Bozon film (the first being the classically romantic "La France") and will be given theatrical release, in addition to VOD and DVD release at the end of the year.
