South Park meets gritty Eastern Europe
Familiar South Park technology set in a Budapest ghetto, to outline a Romeo and Juliet type story between the offspring of two rival gangs. The plot is not the strongest: the main storyline follows how local school kids in the Dangerous Minds mold scheme to make some money, because money gets girls. They bet on oil, find a way to get it and set off a craze to control the revenue. The two rival gangs, local politicians, George Bush, the Pope and even Osama Bin Laden get involved. Even with the sometimes flawed plot, the smart dialog and sharp characterizations carry the movie, although it may be difficult for non-Hungarians to grasp all the references to Budapest urban folklore. There's a bit of singing and rapping, but that really doesn't get in the way. Good fun and a brave film.
