Kontroll (2003) The film is a darkly comic thriller set in the Budapest metro system. “Kontroll” in Hungarian refers to the act of ticket inspectors, checking to ensure a rider has paid their fare. The story revolves around the ticket inspectors, riders, and a possible killer.

Bulcsú is a ticket inspector on the Hungarian metro, he spends his nights sleeping on the train platforms, and hasn’t left the underground ever since he started working there. His ragtag team of inspectors – consisting of the veteran Professzor, the disheveled Lecsó, neurotic narcoleptic Muki and dimwitted greenhorn Tibi – is routinely disrespected and assaulted by the commuters, who continue to evade paying fines in a variety of ways.
