NINE MONTHS WAR
by László Csuja
A 24 years old Hungarian boy has been fighting in the Russian-Ukrainian war for nine months. What motivates the boy to do so? He is not a patriot and doesn’t care about politics. Jani’s decision is about something else - finding independence. The film is shot in an observational style during the boy holidays in his hometown. Besides, we use Jani’s mobile footage from the military camp. The rhythm of the film is dictated by Jani’s arrivals and departures. Nine Months War is a coming-of-age drama, which also shows the problem of militarization in the background.
