  • British star says his "best film" can't find a distributor
    By: Lew Irwin Oct 22, 2001

    British actor Nick Moran, who starred in last year's hit indie film "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels," has told the BBC that distributors have turned their backs on his latest movie, "Christie Malry's Own Double Entry" because it is difficult to market and because the major Hollywood studios have first dibs on most of the U.K.'s screens.

Christie Malry works in a bank, where he learns the principles of double entry book-keeping (i.e. for every debit there must be a credit.) For Christie, this explains his world: debit Christie for offence received, credit society for offence given. Christie opens his account with society and the reckoning begins, all accounts to be settled in full. His mother dies, he gets a girlfriend, the future looks bright. He starts to make the books balance with seemingly trivial acts of vandalism, but the clearer Christie sees the more he is owed and his actions escalate. Interwoven with Christie's experiences is the story of 15th century Italian priest Fra Luca Pacioli, who invented modern accounting. The rise of modern capitalism and artistic ideas in the Renaissance comes to provide a context for Christie's experiment in social accounting.
