Fans of European football (which Americans call soccer) may get an extra kick from this Hungarian time-travel comedy. Rezso (Karoly Eperjes), a garbage man in Budapest, has to clear out the apartment of an old man who has recently died. In the process, he discovers a remarkable collection of football memorabilia, most related to a crucial 1953 Hungary vs. England championship match that was played the day Rezso was born. Discovering a team jersey from the game, Rezso tries it on for size and finds himself transported back to the day of the match, where he's bemused by Hungary's past come to life and eager to witness this moment in sports history with full knowledge of its outcome. 6:3 was shown as part of the 1999 Hungarian Film Week Festival.
