Storyline

Every day life for young men and women in Budapest is on display. All "teenage savages" at the time when communism disappeared in Eastern Europe, they now view the world in a sinister way. Examples: A woman becomes irritated with a man who has left his dog. A father has an argument with his wife about an alarming (to the parents) arousal of sexuality in their 10 y.o. daughter. A young girl is distressed by her growing realization that she is more and more like her sadistic grandmother. A conversation between two guys, apparently about an old car, takes an unexpected turn.

so boring
24 February 2004 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

shot on video, it was impossible to sit through this film comprised of dialogue scenes. the sections do not cohere, the camera hardly moves. some dialogues are interesting but it would be better to read the script, than to sit through this grainy, still film. a true test of perseverance.
