Explanation for Everything

Explanation for Everything / 2023 / Hungary, Slovakia / 151 min

It's summer in Budapest. High school student Ábel should be preparing for his finals, but he has just realised that he is in love with his best friend, Janka. She's a good student and doesn't have to worry about the exam, but she's also hopelessly in love, only with their history teacher, Jakab. Jakab has a family, is trying to survive as a teacher in Hungary, and has had a conflict with Ábel's conservative father. The tensions of a divided society come to the surface when Ábel's history exam turns into a national scandal, and he finds himself somewhere between the two sides, in the middle of it all, and still in love.
