Poster pumps ‘Pascal’

Buyers also lured by strong story, director and d.p.

The poster alone is enough to stoke interest from buyers: The one-sheet for Hungarian director Szabolcs Hajdu’s new film “Bibliotheque Pascal” shows a woman clad in a skintight black latex body suit lying flat on her back.

A bizarre tale of a young mother who is kidnapped and forced into prostitution in London, the film scooped the main prize at the annual Hungarian Film Week in Budapest on Monday and picked up the cinematography award for d.p. Andras Nagy as well as a foreign critics’ prize.

World sales agent Mark Horowitz of London and L.A. based H20 Motion Pictures — who repped two other critically acclaimed Hungarian films, wartime concentration camp drama “Fateless,” directed by Lajos Koltai, and Janos Szasz’s “Opium: Diary of a Madwoman” — said the combination of a strong story, director and d.p. talent, is drawing keen interest for next week’s market screenings of the film. Of course, the striking poster helps, too.

“We have interest from the U.K., Germany and Spain and many other smaller Eastern European territories,” Horowitz said.

“Hungary has a great reputation for directors and cinematographers, and success at the national film awards certainly helps.”
