The movie is based on "Reigen," a play by the late Arthur Schnitzler. The play is made up of short scenes between lovers — either just before or after sex.

Meirelles, who directed Weisz in "City of God," shot the movie in Vienna, Paris, London, Bratislava and Rio de Janeiro. Peter Morgan ("The Queen," "Frost/Nixon") wrote the script.

Andrew Eaton and David Linde produced with Chris Hanley, Danny Krausz and Emanuel Michael.

Magnolia plans a theatrical release in 2012. The movie also will be distributed through Magnolia's Ultra VOD program.
