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.
