Western (12)

Director Valeska Grisebach. Drama


A group of German construction workers start a tough job at a remote site in the Bulgarian countryside. The foreign land awakens the men s sense of adventure, but they are also confronted with their own prejudice and mistrust due to the language barrier and cultural differences. The stage is quickly set for a showdown when men begin to compete for recognition and favour from the local villagers. 'One of the films of the year has arrived – maybe the best of the year – a work of unmatched subtlety, complexity and artistry. It is about tension and transgression, and yet also succeeds in evoking a pure and miraculous calm' P Bradshaw (Guardian) 5 stars

Starring Meinhard Neumann, Reinhardt Wetrek, Syuleyman Alilov Letifov


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

This is a small gem- a gentle reflective episode of life in a beautiful corner of Europe, unlooked-for and rewarding. I'm not sure what our audience was expecting- they seemed somewhat underwhelmed.
