For Some Inexplicable Reason

Reisz Gabor

Hungary, 2014


For some inexplicable reason, things do not turn the way we expect them to. People don’t behave the way we expect them to behave. Someone is not as bad or as sad as we suspected. Someone is smiling instead of being grumpy. This is a movie about Aron, a 29-year-old Hungarian dupe who just finished university and intends to start writing his book on Monday or maybe next Monday. He is not lazy. It is just that he is looking for himself somewhere. Aron is not sad and as dissatisfied as we expected for some inexplicable reason.
