Pile-Up
(Koccanás)

feature, digital, 70 minutes

PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2009.

A bleak crossroads somewhere in Hungary, Eastern Europe, or anywhere in the world. Amidst the usual noisy, busy morning traffic there is a sudden big bang and a clash which brings everything to halt. At the crossroads typical present-day Hungarian - and non-Hungarian - characters band together, ranging from a homeless person to a millionaire, from entrepreneur to manager, from clerk to police officer, from a retired couple to young lovers.

Based on György Spiró's work
