The original title of the movie was ,,Valamilyen furcsa és megmagyarázhatatlan okból kifolyólag", which basically means the same in English. But according to Áron Ferenczik, director Gábor Reisz is obsessed with long titles and the project run with the long name during most of the directing and they only decided to change the title a few months before the release of the film.

The movie Moscow Square beautifully showed us what it felt like living in the last years of the falling socialism.
For Some Inexplicable Reason can be called the millennials' Moscow Square with its goal to capture the life of unemployed university graduate Áron who studied film history.
Director Gábor Reisz, in his first full-length movie, used professional actors to play the parts of the Áron's family, and amateurs for portraying his friends.
The film can be called artsy for having montages and not having a typical Hollywood like structure. It feels very true with its many references to politics, migration, living in Budapest, relationships, and spirit of Hungarian people. Humour plays an important role, as well as sorrow, and this is why this movie can be so appealing to Central- Europeans. Some can argue with me, but I think choosing Áron Ferenczik to play the star role wasn't the greatest idea, but he manages to do a respectable job, this can be also said to the supporting actors. The Soundtrack, as well as many scenes are very memorable.
I can recommend this movie, if you feel like not having a goal in life, and also if you live in Central Europe or you are young and like Hungarian Humour. I hope to see many great movies from Gábor Reisz!
