Explanation For Everything

While MAGYARÁZAT MINDENRE, which translates as “explanation for everything”, might seem like an exaggerated statement as a title, Gábor Reisz’s fiction does indeed manage to unravel the complexity of contemporary Hungarian reality. Abel is a student in the last year of high school, jaded like many, with his attention not all that focused on his schoolbooks. With his final exams around the corner, he will soon provoke a national scandal to avoid disappointing his parents’ expectations. Reisz’s subtle, refined script turns a summer coming-of-age story into a sharp, almost scientific, analysis of Hungary’s current political stalemate. The film’s non-linear structure gives voice to opposing factions which refuse to budge from their positions and are entirely unable to listen to any others. This lack of understanding is at the core of the film: family ties, romantic liaisons and public confrontations are all marked by incomprehension and misunderstanding. MAGYARÁZAT MINDENRE manages to transcend this grim picture and offers us, if not an explanation for everything, an idea of cinema where political engagement and empathy define aesthetic choices. (Rebecca De Pas)
