A group of teens from the wrong side of Budapest's tracks band together to make themselves rich by traveling back in time, burying a horde of mammoths under the city's streets, then returning to the present and drilling for oil. As creators of a new oil-producing nation, their scheme draws the attention of Vladmir Putin, Tony Blair and George W. Bush. In the midst of it all, star-crossed teen love is in bloom.

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A raucously fun cartoon that combines raunchiness, political satire and hip-hop to sometimes exhilarating effect.
The Hungarian cartoon feature The District! is a last-minute shoo-in for the title of 2007's most original animated film.
Fifteen credited artists labored over the distinct animated style, a jerky collage in which cutouts of actors' heads are blended with animated bodies and surroundings; result is crude yet novel.
Eye-popping as The District! is, the overarching geopolitical satire is a haphazardly lobbed grenade too dim-witted to be explosive.
By the time The District is over, one might not have a clear idea what the film is about in a singular sense. But as a free-associating spoof of the modernworld, it's a hoot.
There's so much going on in this animated Hungarian feature that if you don't have attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder going in, you may well develop it by the time you exit the theatre, and I mean that as a compliment.
