Unemployed friends Doka and Bonzo haven't managed to gain a foothold in the new economic climate. They liven up their inactivity with infantile distractions. Big shots from the former regime have meanwhile built up new careers, having caught the crest of the privatization wave. Adopting the appropriate cynicism and employing mafia tactics, they line their pockets and reinforce their position. Matanov and Tsochev are contenders as intermediaries in the sale of an ironworks in Silistra, which a Greek client has his eye on. Both want to get as much as possible out of this transaction, even at the cost of doing away with the competition. The rivals assign trustworthy consultants to engineer the venture, who then appoint compromised flunkies to get the job done. In a wholly random selection, the role of anonymous pawns is entrusted to Doka and Bonzo. With a lucrative reward in their sights, they set off for Silistra, unaware of what they are getting themselves into.Written by

Nice movie, very good directing, interesting characters
Raci, or Crayfish, by Bulgarian director Ivan Tscherkelov, is a nice movie, with a temptation towards philosophical, of which directing is very good. The characters are nice, sometimes gloomy, the dialogs is provoking, sometimes more poetic than necessary.
This is for sure not a commercial movie, but a real moviegoer will not leave the seat before the ending.
It resembles fairly to David Lynch, but in a Bulgarian style.
It is the Bulgarian representative to be chosen for Oscars, definitively won't make it.
At least, this movie will remind you of your mother.
