The new titles join an impressive high-end, art-house slate that also features Berlin acquisitions Being 17, by André Téchiné, and Polish drama United States Of Love as well as Michael Haneke's upcoming Happy End.

"We only started acquiring properly last year. The slate we've built up in that timeframe is quite impressive in terms of the quality and budget of the movies. …
