Primal (Kút, 2016)
Director: Attila Gigor
We are somewhere on the edge of the Austrian border, roughly in the middle of nowhere, where the only thing is a little-used gas station lying in ruins, which gives its flavor because it operates as a transit stop, which is just right for an entrepreneur who lives by running girls in Switzerland. He always stops here with the girls for a little rest, where he can do his little business.
There are a few interesting faces here in the lazy citadel of Suzy orange leaves, dusty sports bars and the tailless cat. We have Istvan, the old alcoholic who works at the gas station, and every two or three weeks he serves this small harem of prostitutes heading West.
Istvan's son, Laci, a grumpy young man who has been to the correctional institution, whom he has not seen for a long time, unexpectedly stumbles into the hot summer idleness with his mother. Meanwhile, for mysterious reasons, the car carrying the girls breaks down and the whole brigade is stuck there for days with Istvan and his son.
Destinies unfold before our eyes. The situation is getting more and more tense. The girls become more and more agitated and want to leave this place. In addition to emotions, well-kept secrets also come to the surface. When the truth comes to the surface, all hell breaks loose in an atmosphere that has been presented up until now with the poignancy of Westerns, but is becoming more and more tense. Who will die and who will live?
