Synopsis

A ragtag crew of ticket inspectors must keep the Metro running while dealing with a rival team, indifferent passengers and a mysterious serial killer.

Our Take

7.0
Sukhbaatar

A story about inspectors on the Hungarian subway and their struggle to get travelers to pay up. Skinheads with attack dogs, drunks and freaks are the harsh reality of these working-class heroes, who themselves of course are quite the weird bunch. Dark post-soviet humor, refreshingly politically incorrect characters and an abstract parallel love story which barely makes sense even at the end. Kontroll is a movie you will regret having waited 10 years to see.
