Tarr pic back on sked

Helmer to finally visit 'London'

Bela Tarr’s “The Man from London” is back on track.  The pic had derailed after the 2005 suicide of French vet producer Humbert Balsan, who’d been the force behind the co-prod between France, Hungary, Germany and the UK.

Based on a Georges Simenon novel, “The Man From London” is now set to resume production in September. 

Balsan killed himself a day before the start of principal photography.

French producer Paul Saadoun came in last September to replace  Balsan and sort out the complicated  legal situation.

Saadoun managed to raise most of $4.3 million still needed to complete the film.

“All the French parties, the CNC, ARTE and CanalPlus upped their investment and the Hungarian government  also put more money into the film,” explained Saadoun who’s also receiving money from German ARTE and the Berlin Brandenburg Medienboard.
