A young Los Angeles club DJ, caught between the wishes of his overbearing father and his dreams of musical freedom, uncovers danger, music, a dark family secret and the girl of his dreams, while navigating the sexy and often dangerous streets of Budapest's famous night life.Written by
This movie just came out in Hungary where it sort of originates from, and it is a very pleasant surprise. It is a simple story, sometimes with kinda emblematic scene, like a Hungarian cab driver that speaks fluent English - even before he finds out that our guy (brand new talent Alex Weed) is an American guy in Budapest.
Or some other time our man, Mitch (still Alex Weed) enters a club where they dance to Hungarian folk music, but the turntables are connected bad to the amp so bad noise only, no music. He comes in, fixes it, and makes friends in a minute .. I should call this a week scene ... should but it still works fine .. and i dindt mention the very good ones.
The grand ma is at lest as cool as Aunt Lotte from Stranger than Paradise... she's not only an old lady . she's a very well built character .. one night Mitch doesn't go out but stays with her at home and she rests her feet in his lap and he gives them a massage .. i don't know how good this sounds but it is a very cool scene .. and it's just one of those ..
I thought that it'd be just another of those movies in which another foreign student writes his/her story, builds his/her picture about Budapest, that would hardly even fit .. but NO ! This is a cool one, i can even say that as a Hungarian person :: very MIX of art and story telling, speed and style, a good movie, at least 1 of the (few) best movies this year
