Hungarian fest rejects Tarr pic

'Man' goes missing in Film Week

BUDAPEST — The Hungarian Film Week has rejected the latest pic from one of the country’s most successful auteurs.

According to the pic’s shingle, TT Filmmuhely, “The Man from London,” helmed by Bela Tarr, will not be screened at the film festival, which will run Jan. 29-Feb. 5.

Tarr confirmed to Variety that the pic, which screened at international festivals such as Cannes and Toronto, was turned down by the festival board as a non-competition film to open the festival.

Neither Tarr nor the fest’s organizers, the Hungarian Filmunio, would comment further on the decision.

Tarr said “The Man from London,” based on a novel by George Simenon and starring Tilda Swinton, will have its Budapest premiere on Jan. 28, the day before the Film Week’s opening, at Budapest’s Urania Cinema.

The Film Week is expected to announce its lineup early next month.
