Korean movie “Dohee-ya (A Girl at My Door)” will be released in France amid growing interest in Cannes, officials said Friday.
French film company Epicentre will distribute the movie no later than this year, the company said. It will be provided to about 60 movie theaters in the country, it added.
Dohee-ya has been invited to the Cannes Film Festival as part of the non-competitive section, and been highly praised by film critics.
The movie, starring Bae Doo-na and 15-year-old Kim Sae-ron, shows an encounter between a police woman and a mysterious girl who was abused by her family.
The U.K. and Italy also decided to distribute Dohee-ya. Distribution negotiations are also underway in Japan, sources said.
