Biography

István Szabó was born in Budapest in 1938. Active internationally as a writer, producer, actor and director, a selection of some his most well-known German films and co-productions includes: "Mephisto"(1981), "Oberst Redl" ("Colonel Redl", 1985), "Offenbachs Geheimnis" (TV, 1996), "Meeting Venus" (1998), "Taking Sides - Der Fall Furtwängler" ("Taking Sides", 2001), and a segment of the film "Ten Minutes Older: Ten Minutes After" (2002).

The production "Rokonok" (2006) about a general attorney who is confronted with bribery was only released in Hungary and screened at a few festivals. Six years later, Szabó returned with an adaptation of the novel "Hinter der Tür": Starring Martina Gedeck and Helen Mirren, the film focuses on the unique relationship between a female writer and her maid.
