This is a trenchant social satire of contemporary philistinism
4 October 2004 | by majorSee all my reviews

This is a trenchant social satire of contemporary philistinism fashioned in typical merciless and incisive style of writer Georgi Mishev, who has a series of films to his credit, realized in collaboration with several different directors (Lyudmil Kirkov, Eduard Sachariev, Ivan Andonov, Chavdar Gagov). This time he uses his satirical talent to expose the moral distortions and the coarse consumerist attitude to life, which the discrepancy between growing living standards and sluggish moral evolution create in people. 'Villa zone' opens with party at a small suburban villa. The youngest son of the family has been called up to join the army and he is having his farewell party. However, tension replaces the festive mood as soon as he announced that he has married the girl whom his parents consider unsuitable, not least because of her poor financial prospects. The natural defensive reaction of the parents is expressed in a series of aggressive acts, but the mutiny of the young man against the rank of consumerist passions and the narrow-mindedness of his parents shakes the fragile foundations of their philistine well being. This is one of successive, remarkable films in Bulgarian cinema in 70th.
