After being released in Germany this past spring, “Girl on a Bicycle” has landed North American distribution with Monterey Media, the company announced today. The film follows Paolo, an Italian bus driver living in Paris who is about to propose to his girlfriend when he comes across and becomes immediately infatuated with a mysterious girl on a bicycle. Monterey Media are planning a Fall 2013 release for the romantic comedy.
“We are so very thrilled to be distributing Jeremy’s new film, following the Warner Bros. release in Germany. This is a truly delightful and funny comedy, an actual ‘date’ movie for both young and not so young,” commented Scott Mansfield, monterey media President.
The film was written and directed by Jeremy Leven, who has not helmed a feature since 1994’s “Don Juan DeMarco” but has been a screenplay writer on a variety of films, from “The Notebook” to “Real Steal.” The film stars Italian actor Vincenzo Amato and features German actress Nora Tschirner and French actress Louise Monot, with British actor Paddy Considine rounding out the impressive international cast.
