Studio Canal has obtained the UK/Ireland rights for Charlie Casanova

Nominated for no less than 5 IFTA’s (Irish Film and TV Awards) this year, Terry McMahon’s controversial “Charlie Casanova,  the U.K and Irish rights has been acquired by Studio Canal the French-owned distribution company.

The no-budget drama stars Emmett Scanlan as a sociopathic Irish yuppie who kills a girl in a hit-and-run accident and then uses playing cards to decide his fate. Screened at the Galway Film Festival it came out winner for best first feature.

The movie has provoked fiercely divided response from critics and audiences. “It sets out to viscerally provoke as many questions as possible, and answer none of them,” said McMahon, a former actor who also wrote for Irish TV soap “Fair City.”

Writer and director McMahon raised all the financing for Charlie Casanova and recruited most of his cast and crew through postings on Facebook, with the filmmaker claiming it was the first feature film conceived and launched though the use of the social networking site. Windmill Lane facilities house provided post-production services for free.

Starring Emmet Scanlan, and Valeria Bandino
