OVERNIGHT is the third and final film of director Torok’s trilogy about the fall of the socialist regime in Hungary.  It is the dramatic story of 24 hours in the life of a Hungarian stockbroker, Peter, whose private and professional life undergoes serious questioning. One of Peter’s big clients suddenly claims a large amount of money that Peter had lost, while he receives a positive pregnancy test anonymously. These two situations cause upheaval in Peter’s view of the world. A fascinating study of post-Socialist Hungary.  English subtitles.
