France tv distribution has acquired the distribution rights to the film "Parisian Hustle" (original title: "Rue des dames") which international sales of the film will be launched at the 2021 Totonto International Film Festival (TIFF).
The French distributor will be working with La Rumeur Filme et Mare & Monti Films on the international distribution of the motion picture directed by Hamé Bourokba and Ekoué Labitey. On the other hand, "Parisian Hustle" will be distributed in France by The Jokers and released in theatres in 2022.
"Parisian Hustle" tells the story of Paris, far from the popular tourist spots. Twenty-three-year-old Mia (Garance Marillier) is already struggling to make ends when she finds out she's pregnant. A manicurist by day, she spends her nights at parties, introducing her female nail spa customers to VIPs. But things go south when a rising football star gets one of her customers pregnant. Mia's hands are tied: in exchange for a large sum of money, she is to persuade the young woman to give up the child.
In the wake of the 2017 film "Paris Prestige" (starring Reda Kateb and Mélanie Laurent), the members of the French rap band La Rumeur, namely Hamé Bourokba and Ekoué Labitey, are directing their second feature. A social movie depicting a young modern woman.
