very cool hungarian movie. too bad nimrod antal kinda lost his indie touch after this one (aka went hollywood), although one can still see that he's pretty good at making simple yet suspenseful thrillers (armored, vacancy) or nostalgia-laden b-actioners (predators).
Excellent movie with both ambition and style to burn. The script is great, the characters interesting and the direction assured. I was sometimes reminded of early Luc Besson when it comes to the poetic and quirky moments. I also love the dark undertones and the metaphorical aspects of the story. And the best thing is that Hollywood has not tried to remake it yet.
I always knew ticket 'Kontrollers' have a dark side. With the storyline taking place just in one location (The Hungarian subway), this film never gets dull. You'll be greeted by a dark yet pleasant action, based on some stereotyped characters revolving around the inner battle of the main character Bulcsú. Oh, and there's that funny and adorable bunny woman. I'm only sorry it took me until now to watch this.
A movie for both mainstream and non-mainstream audiences, in a way like Chris Nolan's work. In Hungary most people have seen it, and almost everyone knows it. Some jokes might not be understood by foreign viewers, but It's still recommended, because of its great characters, storyline, cinematography and atmosphere. It isn't short of memorable sequences either.
