The massive labyrinthine netherworld that is the Budapest subway system provides the stunning setting for "Kontroll," a high style, high speed romantic thriller in which the lives of assorted outcasts, lovers, and dreamers intersect and collide, and where one handsome young hero, one mysterious maiden, and one particularly nasty killer must conduct a race against time, trains, and destiny itself in their frantic pursuit of one another. "Kontroll" was awarded the 23rd Prix de la Jeunesse presented in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival, was Hungary's most successful film in the domestic box office in 2003 and is the country's official foreign language entry into the 2005 Academy Awards.
