Revolver Entertainment has snapped up UK rights to A Serbian Film, sold by Jinga Films.
The film, about a retired Serbian porn star who agrees to one last terrifying role, is set for a theatrical
release in the UK on 10 December.
Srdjan Spasovic directed from Aleksander Radivojevic’s script.
Both praised for its bravery and condemned for its stark imagery, A Serbian Film has polarised the critics and is set to provoke a fierce debate around the use of violence and sexual exploitation in storytelling.
Milos (Srdjan Todorovic) is a retired porn star trying to make ends meet. He meets Vukmir (Sergej Trifunovic), a menacing and politically powerful figure who wants him to star in his latest project and is willing to secure his financial future. The only condition is that Milos signs a contract insisting on his absolute unawareness of the scripted scenes they are about to shoot
Revolver’s pick-up of A Serbian Film follows on from its release of their controversial Mum & Dad on Boxing Day 2009. The company is set to release Destricted in the US this month.
