Korean film "The Housemaid - 2010" has racked up a string of deals at the ongoing Cannes Film Market, selling to six countries at the event held concurrently with the Cannes Film Festival.
A report by film magazine Screen International on Tuesday said Mirovision, the producer and sales agent for "The Housemaid - 2010", sold its Italian rights to Fandango and Australian rights to Madman Entertainment.
Also, AMA Film picked up "The Housemaid - 2010" in Greece, Edko Films in Hong Kong, Festive Films in Singapore and M Pictures in Thailand.
The movie had been pre-sold to Pretty Pictures for France in March, ahead of the opening of the film market.
The film, about a young maid who comes to work for a wealthy couple and starts having an affair with the husband, saw the biggest opening for a local film so far this year and has attracted over one million admissions in just six days of its release on May 13.
