Vchera is a 10!!!
14 June 2004 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Thanks mainly to the superb acting of many members of the cast, especially that of Bulgaria's secret weapon, Hristo Shopov, "Vchera" ranks high among the world's film classics. Unfortunately, Shopov's acting ability and fine, expressive face have been hidden for too long from true connoisseurs of dramatic acting. Let us hope that his flawles performance as Pontius Pilate in Mel Gibson's amazing and inspiring film "The Passion of the Christ" will earn him much deserved recognition and honors, and will bring him a bounty of great motion picture roles which he so richly deserves. What a tragedy it would be if he were to slip back into obscurity inside Bulgaria. BRAVO, Mr. Shopov!!!
