Pyramide International to pin its hopes on present and future films in Berlin
- The French sales agent who’ll be wagering on Midwives in the Panorama line-up will also be banking on upcoming films by Catherine Breillat, Nadir Moknèche, Anna Novion and Marie Garel-Weiss
Final preparations are underway for French sales agent Pyramide International (headed up by Eric Lagesse and steered by Agathe Mauruc) just ten days ahead of the European Film Market unspooling within the 73rd Berlinale (running 16 – 26 February). Shining bright in the showcase is a film set to world premiere in the Panorama section, Léa Fehner’s Midwives [+see also:

Indeed, Pyramide International will be kicking off pre-sales on Last Summer by Catherine Breillat (article), Sur la branche by Marie Garel-Weiss (article - starring Daphné Patakia, Benoît Poelvoorde and Agnès Jaoui), You Promised Me The Sea by Nadir Moknèche (a Blue Monday production starring Youssouf Abi-Ayad, Kenza Fortas and Lubna Azabal, revolving around an arranged marriage which hides many secrets) and Le théorème de la Marguerite by Anna Novion (revealed in Cannes’ Critics’ Week 2008 via Grown Ups [+see also:

Market screenings stealing focus on the agenda are My Sole Desire [+see also:
