Trivia

The scene when Maria and Áron first meet, the girl talks about her grandmother who died because of an infection she got from biting her nails and Áron should stop doing that, too, if he doesn't want to die. Actor Áron Ferenczik had no idea what she said until somebody could translate it to him during a school event where the film was shown in March 2015. See more »

Budapest Zeitgeist
31 October 2014 | by chimie-340-361128See all my reviews

Although partly set in Lisbon, this is essentially a Budapest movie that is finally able to show how does it feel to be a young adult in Hungary's capital.

"For some inexplicable reason"'s real strength lies in its honestly - it doesn't feel like a bigger budget art movie, rather you feel like roaming around with your friends on the streets of your hometown. You may make some detours or find some odd details that may not add up to a thorough story on the way, but that is how real life works, isn't it?

So what to expect when you meet those friends? You will laugh sometimes, you will be sad for a while, you will recall your own experiences (especially if you are twenty-something or from Central Europe)... and I guess you will recall some scenes and thoughts from the movie even days later.

Surgeon general's warning: watching this movie may make you want to visit Budapest. Avoid it if your normal diet consists solely of Hollywood movie.
