His first night of freedom draws the map of a diabolical city full of decaying neighborhoods, gloomy streets and a bizarre parade of characters. Written by
I saw the trailer first and thought it's great but it surely wasn't the reason took me to the cinema.I know Yavor Gardev is absolutely brilliant theater director and just couldn't wait to see his film debut. I like the movie is black and white, it's different from the usual American commercial rubbish. I love to see Snezhina Petrova even in that small bit, she is incredible...just adore her way of expression! I think Zahary Baharov is the right choice for the leading role, I was impressed by his voice-very emotional and touching. Have to admit I didn't understand some parts of the movie 'cause it's just full with a lot of symbols, difficult to catch all of them. The film is not perfect but it's a sign someone is trying to create something really good and competitive.I go to the cinema once in a blue moon but this time I went to see Zift for a special reason- to support the Bulgarian cinematography. And I'd like to do it again....sure I will and expecting a new film from Yavor Gardev /I'm really proud with his success in Russia/.
