PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2007.
The film is based on the story of a true crime committed in Hungary: two teenage girls killed a taxi driver. Using the news coverage of the murder, the director presents the fairly typical surroundings of a generation for which sex and sexuality have a previously unknown meaning. The traditional roles and taboos are long forgotten, and gone are the shyness and sensibility associated with sensuality. The young consider their bodies a means to an end. In the story this generation encounters another, that of the taxi drivers, who traditionally hover between the existence of petty criminals and that of the middle class. The story has two threads: one showing the personalities and environments of the two girls, the other showing those of the taxi drivers.
