Plot & Details
Location filming in Budapest adds to the realism of this tense thriller. An expatriate American author (Craig Sheffer) is held hostage by a disturbed woman carrying a razor and willing to use it (Helen de Fougerolles). The wordsmith must quickly decide if the woman is a violent psychotic or if her claims of being threatened by a Communist stooge turned free-enterprise advocate (Jurgen Prochnow) could possibly be the truth. This international co-production was shown as part of the 1999 Hungarian Film Week Festival.
