While at the Cannes film festivals, big budget films such as 'Kites', 'My Name is Khan' and 'Kambakkht Ishq' were trying very hard to tap the Cannes movie market this year, Dev Benegal's 'Road Movie' quietly stole the thunder as the leading global sales agent Fortissimo Films has picked up its distribution rights. 'Road Movie' is the first Indian movie to be picked up by the international sale giant at the Cannes.

The film's leading lady Tannishtha Chatterjee was at the French Film Festival to promote the film. She is elated to be a part of what she calls, "travelling cinema". "The film is a kind of cinema which is bound to have a universal appeal. It is like a dream, a fantasy-like film whose content goes across the boundaries," news reports said quoting Tannishtha Chatterjee, who has already made her presence felt internationally with her BAFTA nominated film 'Brick Lanes'.
