OUT is an odyssey about 50 year old family man Agoston wandering through East Europe. After loosing his lifelong job in a power plant of small Slovak village Agoston takes the shady but alluring opportunity to work as a welder in a shipyard in Latvia. The journey in hopes of a new job in reality turns into a accelerating whirlwind of absurd events of short encounters, newly found-and-lost-again friendships subtracting from Agoston all his possessions and everything he once believed to be his whole life. However Agoston doesn't give up his search for income and decides to persuade his dream of catching a big sea fish.
Fine script, seamless acting, stunning interplay of several languages. The situations in which the protagonist finds himself are bizarre, hilarious, and often completely random, but never tastelessly exaggerated.
The cinematography is truly mesmerising, and the way the symbol of the fish is woven into the film is very clever.
The director confirmed that the lead actor only speaks Hungarian, and had to learn his (many!) lines in other languages phonetically, which is frankly undetectable in the film.
Don't miss it!
