Explanation for Everything
- Gábor Reisz
- Hungary, Slovakia
Abel, an impetuous high school student on the verge of graduation, is in love. His only problem is that the object of his desires, his best friend Janka, has her eye on their married history professor Jakab. Distracted and unable to focus on his graduation test, Abel exits the exam room with a failing grade. Unwilling to accept the disappointing result, he insinuates to a local reporter that the test was adjudicated by Jakab with an unfair political bias. The result is a national scandal.
Explanation for Everything’s elegant narrative structure pieces together a layered mosaic of personal and political life, as opposing sides of a polarized Budapest hurtle towards a classroom confrontation.
