I remember you once asked me what TILT means? If you push the pinball too hard, you lose the ball. The game is over. That's what I thought back then. Now I know, I was wrong. The game is over only when you give up. This time I won't do it. I won't lose you for a second time.

TILT is a definite on any cinema enthusiast's 'to watch list'
TILT is not surprisingly the Bulgarian entry for the Oscars in 2012. The film is beautifully shot, the story intriguing depicting the changes in Bulgaria in the period 1989-1991 in a fresh, non-political manner, with outstanding acting performances.
As a European production the film has the distinctive characteristics of independent films, however, it is not annoyingly artsy. Moreover, the visual style is distinctively creative, which a novelty for Bulgarian cinema.
What I found especially noteworthy is the humor with all the serious issues of the story are presented, not diminishing their significance, moreover highlighting them that makes the film also very entertaining and pleasant to watch.
The main premise is a love story that that however does not make TILT suitable only for younger audiences. The years the film is set to depict are important for Bulgarian history and familiar to a number of generations.
Overall, I recommend TILT to various audiences that enjoy quality filmmaking.
