HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Noomi Rapace and Joel Kinnaman starrer The Secrets We Keep, Israeli director Yuval Adler’s follow-up to his Berlin out-of-competition entry The Operative, has pretty much sold out worldwide at Berlin’s European Film Market.

Stuart Ford’s AGC International has wrapped up multiple territory presales for the upcoming period thriller.

AGC closed deals for The Secrets We Keep in France (Amazon), Germany (Universum), Italy (Cloud Nine), Scandinavia (Svensk), Japan (Tohokushinsha), China (Jushi) and with Sun Distribution for Spain, Portugal and Latin America. Vertical Entertainment nabbed rights for the film across most of Eastern Europe, with CTB/Nashe Kino taking the title in CIS. Other deals include ones for Greece (Odeon), Indonesia (Cinema 21), Taiwan (Applause), Israel (United King) and the Middle East (Selim Ramia).

Adler, in Berlin for the world premiere Sunday night of his latest, the spy thriller The Operative, starring Diane Kruger and Martin Freeman, met with buyers one-on-one at AGC’s suite at the Ritz Carlton earlier in the week to pitch his new project. Rapace, who is an executive producer on the project, was at AGC’s offices pitching the project to buyers in Berlin.

Prometheus actress Rapace will play Maja, a holocaust survivor rebuilding her life in New York after World War II. But a random encounter with an eerily familiar man (Suicide Squad‘s Joel Kinnaman) — who seems to resemble her chief tormentor as she fled from the Nazi occupation in WWII — sets Maja off on a revenge mission. When she takes matters into her own hands, kidnapping the man, Maja sets in motion a series of memories and events that will change her whole perception of the truth.
