Moscow Square (Moszkva ter)
Description: This film concerns a group of high school seniors looking to have fun and get a glimpse of the larger world outside their hometown, but this group of teens is a bit different than those in American Pie or Porky's -- the protagonists of Moszkva Ter are students in Hungary whose last year in high school happens to coincide with the collapse of communism in that nation in 1989. While history is being made all around Petya (Gabor Karalyos) and his friends, they're more concerned with finishing school and finding a more exciting life than those their families have been forced to endure. Petya in particular is eager to see Paris -- partly because a pretty girl (Eszter Balla) he's fallen in love with has already taken the train to France. But Petya's attempts to forge a railway ticket to follow her have unfortunate consequences, as do the hijinks of his buddies. Moszkva Ter was named the Best First Feature during 2001's Hungarian Film Week.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
