Movie Info

An Albanian immigrant hijacks a Greek passenger bus in hopes of gaining safe passage back to his home country in director Constantine Giannaris' tense account of the headline-making 1999 hostage situation that quickly spiraled into disaster. An armed Albanian man wanders onto a Greek bus, immediately overtaking the frightened passengers while issuing demands for money and safe passage back into Albania. In the subsequent twenty-hours, the tragic events that unfolded on that bus would serve to highlight the increasingly explosive relationship between Greece and its neighboring country Albania. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Omiros (Hostage)


This was so incredibly depressing. It had lots of potential to be a great thriller but it just fell flat. Foreign films are almost always depressing. Here is one where we had to look away during THREE parts. Foreign films also show a little bit TOO much!!!
