"Avatar" did around half the business that "Tadas Blinda" has done on its opening weekend.
International sales for "Tadas Blinda" which are being handled by Planeta Inform Film Distribution (the former Sovexportfilm), will be launched in November at the American Film Market in Santa Monica.
Tadas (Vidas Petkevicius), the teller of the film's rambling autobiographical tale, is a much-praised painter.
This leads Tadas' mother to a life of serving up sexual favors to the local cops and pols to feed and house her disgraced family.
Eventually, Tadas' father returns and is forced to confront the price his loved ones have paid.
