    Director: Nimród Antal
    Original Title: Kontroll
    Language: Hungarian

    Main Cast: Sándor Csányi, Zoltán Mucsi, Csaba Pindroch and Sándor Badár, Eszter Balla

    Kontroll is a crisp, visually arresting thriller in which an unlikely set of government workers safeguard the public as an anonymous killer stalks the subway tunnels beneath Budapest.

    Displaying an energetic drive seldom seen in East European cinema, Antal Nimrod’s debut feature Control has enjoyed that rare feat of satisfying both then box office and the critics… Successfully combining the dynamic impetuosity of an American action film with the darker broody moods of the Magyar soul…


The Bottom Line:

Set in the Budapest underground, this is a remarkably stylish (comedy) thriller from Hungary. It also shows director, Nimrod Antal as a major talent. Wowing critics and audiences in equal measure with its confident direction and performances, Kontroll has won over 13 major awards and we are delighted to screen it in Kilkenny.
