PARIS - Mads Matthiesen´s “The Model” proved one of TrustNordisk´s hot new titles at the European Film Market, where the Scandi giant unveiled a three-minute promo.
“The Model” enlisted a raft of distributors, such as AB Groupe for France, Kino Swiat for Poland, Scene & Sound in Korea, Pro Films for Bulgaria and Gulf Film for the Middle East.
Set against the backdrop of Paris´ fashion industry, the film follows a young model (Maria Palm) who struggles to break into the Parisian scene and develops a dangerous obsession with a photographer.
“The Model” marks Matthiesen´s follow-up to “Teddy Bear,” which won best director at Sundance in 2012, among other awards.
Pic, which was first pitched at Paris Project and most recently at Goteborg´s Nordic Film Market, is being produced by Jonas Bagger for Zentropa Entertainments.
Nordisk Film Distribution will distribute the film in Scandinavia.
