Rap, Revue, Romeo
(Rap, Revü, Rómeó)

feature, 35mm, 100 minutes

PREMIER (HUNGARY): 2004.

Rap, Revue, Romeo is a true mix of genres. It is a love story with music from the heart of the eighth district, with the drug business, mafia turf wars, Gypsy rappers, Chinese shop-keepers and Hungarian knuckle stew.
Whoever has not lived in Józsefváros, can only know this place through preconceptions – Rap, Revue, Romeo tries to overwrite these clichés.
The local king, uncle Dodi tries to crown his underworld success with the help of the Revue bar. In running his business he takes on his inexperienced and good-looking relative called Romeo, and he contracts the Kalányos Rap Team Roma rap group to entertain his ”sophisticated” audience. Romeo, who is less perceptive about the career of a gangster, falls in love with the daughter of the neigh-bouring Chinese shop’s owner, but the maffia turf wars and vendettas cast a shadow over his love.www.raprevuromeo.hu
