Biography

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