The first film of Bulgarian New Wave?
16 May 2012 | by peppyaiolovSee all my reviews

All the European countries had their film waves - Italian,french,English,polish,czech,German,romanian waves, but no Bulgarian.

To have a "wave" in cinema you need a group of films which are alike, at least five let's say. Until now in Bulgaria we do not have five films in a same year or even two or three years which are alike.

All of Bulgarian films are strongly personal and not like the others. Their characters are strong personalities closed in their own life.

Podslon (2010) is film about the lack of communication within the family and specially between generations before and after communist regime. This is a big theme for Bulgaria and I only hope that other four films will join this "first of a kind" Bulgarian film and will create at last The Bularian New Wave in Cinema.

For the last two years this didn't happened and it seems like lost cause.Anyway I strongly recommend Podslon(2010) for being a real cultural artifact from contemporary cultural discourse in Bulgaria.

Podslon(2010) shows the quiet and grey "real" of Bulgarian life without trying to create "hyperreal" cinema experience,just to amuse audience.

If you want to see the real Bulgaria,watch Podslon!
