Trust picks up Hungarian prize-winner The Investigator
Trust Film Sales of Denmark has confirmed it is handling international
sales for Hungarian film The Investigator.
Trust CEO Rikke Ennis told ScreenDaily.com that the company is aiming for
a major festival release later this year.
Attila Gigor's film won five awards at Hungarian Film Week in February,
including Best Actor for Zsolt Anger, Best Editing and Best Screenplay.
The film tells the story of a coroner who agrees to murder a man in order
to pay for his mother's cancer treatment.
Ennis says The Investigator will distinguish itself through its droll and often
"Audiences like to cry and laugh at the same time," Ennis said. "You can
laugh and at the same time there's a heavy message."
Ennis said that she actually encountered the project in its development
stage and, based on what she thought was an "amazing" script, decided to
pick it up.
