Carla Bruni Documentary 'The Birth Of A First Lady' Sold For Release In 12 Countries

"The Birth of a First Lady," a documentary chronicling the life of French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy over an 18 month period, has been sold for release in a dozen countries, AFP reports:

Distributors in Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Sweden and Switzerland have already bought the rights to the documentary, said Isabelle Graziadey of the Terranoa company in charge of overall distribution.

Deals are under negotiation with Italy and Spain while Australia, Britain, Greece, Portugal and the United States have also expressed an interest, she said.

The documentary is 90 minutes long, but edited down to 52 minutes for foreign viewers. Graziadey called the interest in the as-of-now unfinished film "really unusual."

Bruni-Sarkozy is expected to be seen again soon on the silver screen. She is rumored to have a part in Woody Allen's upcoming movie.
