IFC Entertainment has acquired US rights from Fortissimo Films to Bela Tarr's Hungarian drama Man From London starring Tilda Swinton.

The film, which premiered in competition in Cannes 2007, will go out through IFC's Festival Direct VOD service.

Tarr adapted the screenplay with Laszlo Krasznahorkai from Belgian writer Georges Simenon's novel about a railway worker trapped in a bleak routine who chances upon a suitcase filled with cash.

Miroslav Krobot, Erika Bok, Leah Williams, Janos Derzsi and Istvan Lenart round out the key ensemble and Gabor Teni, Paul Saadoun, Miriam Zachar, Joachim Von Vietinghoff and Christoph Hahnheiser produced.

IFC Films' director of acquisitions and production Lizzie Nastro brokered the deal with Fortissimo's senior vice president of acquisitions and sales Winnie Lau.
