Scandinavian distributor LevelK has inked a number of deals for Klaus Härö’s One Last Deal (Tuntematon mestari), following its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

Screen Daily reports that sales agreements have been done for Brazil, Japan, Taiwan, and Australia and New Zealand, as well as worldwide airlines excluding Taiwan and the Nordics.

“The warm reception to Klaus Häro’s beautiful film One Last Deal at TIFF from distributors, audiences and the press has been overwhelmingly positive,” Lauren Valmadre, sales manager at LevelK, is quoted as saying. “With already a few major territories signed and more to come shortly, we are proud to be working with such an excellent film and esteemed team.”

The film tells the story of an elderly art dealer who hopes to make one last deal and prove his worth to his estranged family.

“I am truly overwhelmed with all the positive reactions and feedback we’ve received at TIFF,” director Härö says. “Being at the festival and kicking off the film with great Q&As and really good reviews feels just like winning an award. It is slowly starting to sink in that we’ve made a really good film.”
