Dir. Valeska Brisebach, Germany/Austria/Bulgaria, 119 mins, 2017, Subtitled
A group of German workers start a tough job at a remote construction site on the Bulgarian border. The foreign land awakens the men’s sense of adventure, but they are confronted with their own prejudice and mistrust. The stage is quickly set for a showdown when men begin to compete for recognition and favour from the local villagers.
Valeska Grisebach’s latest is a sharp, simmering culture-clash drama.
