A young native of southern California (Alex Weed), who’s both a classical pianist and a club DJ, flies to Budapest with his Hungarian father to attend his grandfather’s funeral. While there he gets caught up in two local subculturesthe porn industry and the technopop rave sceneuntil those worlds disastrously collide. Hungarian writer-director Steven Lovy favors flashy jump cuts and a wildly roving camera, but eventually this settles down into a fairly entertaining youth movie with plenty of music. In English and subtitled Hungarian. 97 min. (JR)
