STAND OFF Túsztörténet

Updated from a true event that took place some 15 years ago, STAND OFF
follows five days in the lives of two brothers who hold a group of high school
girls hostage in their dormitory and demand 400,000 Swiss francs and safe
passage abroad from the authorities. The catch is that the gun-wielding
adolesents are the sons of the local border-guard commander, who stands
for everything they hate about the establishment….Special mention must go
to the Hungarian director Istvan (Mephisto, Hanussen) who played a lone
outsider, a doctor to gain entrance to the dormitory. His edgy performance is
one of many high points in the exceedingly tense film.

“Stand Off” a film as suspenseful as Hitchcock and a devastating expression
of Eastern European frustration.

Kevin Thomas -L.A. Times

A gripping drama “Stand Off” is an unusually “Westernized” Hungarian film. -
Variety

Ever unpredictable, Gazdag once again proves himself one of Hungary’s
most versatile talents…..
