review by
Mike Haberfelner

Gábor's (Péter Inoka) dad (Dániel Szabó) has left to parts unkknown when he was a baby. He's in his mid-20s now, and his mother (Zsuzska Rujzam) is slowly dying from cancer. Then he, his girlfriend Annamari (Csinszka Flóra Kiss) and his best friend Daniel (Dávid Kiss) find a paper containing some coordinates among his dad's papers, and they decide to find some answers ... and instead they find a car, a car that belonged to Gábor's father and against all odds is still working after all these years. So the three friends decide to follow the other coordinates on the paper one after the next - and get in parallel universe after parallel universe, some ravaged by war and natural disasters, some too good to be true (to the point that there's no place for them), a journey that makes them think about many things - when they're not on the run from something or other ...

 

A very interesting low budget science fiction movie that uses its parallel universe not so much as a hanger for action (though there's some of that, too) or political commentary but goes very deep into exploring the emotional side of things, presenting its three leads as essentially broken characters for whom the journey through all these parallel worlds might serve as a healing process. And a deliberately slow pace and subtle directorial effort only help the film to reach its full impact.
