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 Housemaid- 2010", a remake of a 1960s classic erotic thriller, stars 2007 Cannes best actress award-winner Jeon Do-yeon, Lee Jung-jae and veteran actress Youn Yuh-jung.

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.
