Berlin-based Picture Tree Intl. has taken international sales rights to Caito Ortiz’s true-storybased Brazilian comedy “Jules and Dolores,” on the robbery of the soccer World Cup trophy in Brazil. The film narrates a striking event in Brazilian soccer history: For 13 years, three-time World Cup winner Brazil had proudly displayed the legendary Jules Rimet trophy at the Brazilian Football Association’s headquarters in Rio de Janeiro, when, in 1983, the highly coveted and extremely valuable trophy was stolen from its cabinet. “Jules and Dolores” recounts the nearpreposterous story behind this bold theft.
