Incredible Film has added three new dynamic Dutch films to its Cannes 2018 slate.
Frans Weisz’s Life is Wonderful is a movie about love and longing, all set during one Spring day in Amsterdam. Speech by Barbara Bredero is a romantic comedy about the effect of our evolving language on a woman who is passionate about words. Behind the Clouds is the first feature-length film by Cecilia Verheyden, based on a stage play by Michael De Cock, and featuring two of Flanders’ finest actors, Jo De Meyere and Chris Lomme. In the film, two people meet again after more than 50 years.
On May 8, pre-buyers of Roel Reiné’s Redbad, starring Jonathan Banks, will see a feature-length version of the film in Cannes ahead of its final cut (World premiere, Amsterdam June 28). The film has already sold to The Netherlands, Germany, France, Spain, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Turkey, CIS, Middle East, South Korea, North America & Canada.
