If you’re a fan of European films then this one might just be for you…

Eureka Entertainment announced today that they have acquired the rights to Come As You Are (Hasta La Vista), Geoffrey Enthoven’s film about love, unconditional friendship and lust, based on the experiences of Asta Philpot – an ardent campaigner for disabled people.

Here’s a little bit about what you can expect from the film:

Three guys in their twenties love wine and women but they are still virgins. Under the guise of a wine tour they embark on a journey to Spain hoping to have their first sexual experience. Nothing will stop them. Not even their handicaps: one is blind, one is confined to a wheelchair and one is completely paralysed.

If you like films like The Intouchables, Rust and Bone and The Driving Bell and the Butterfly, this one might just be for you…Its already won Audience Awards at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in 2012, the European Film Awards 2012 and the Montreal World Film Festival 2012 as well as the Grand Prix des Amerique and a special jury mention at the Montreal World Film Festival 2012.

Come As You Are (Hasta La Vista) will be released theatrically in key cities around the UK and Eire on 7 June 2013
