Hungarian cinematographer Lajos Koltai gained international attention by way of his many collaborations with his brilliant countryman, director Istvan Szabo.

Koltai has also worked on a number of American projects, notably director Luis Mandoki's Gaby--A True Story (1987) and White Palace (1990). In 1991, Lajos Koltai was reteamed with Istvan Szabo on the British-produced Meeting Venus. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
