Avé is a gem of Eastern Europe cinema
24 October 2016 | by losindiscretoscineSee all my reviews

Through his own story, Konstantin Bojanov draws the realistic portrait of two young adults that seem to be the opposites of each other. The photography and the faint colours give a signature to the film and a sober character to these two destinies in distress that try to escape from their past to reach a blur and uncertain future. And kilometre by kilometre and lie by lie (each of Avé's lies more doubtful than the other), complicity between the two teens takes shape. The eye contact between the characters is delicate and singularly poetical in a gloomy Bulgaria where we are told the most melancholic story : the loss of a beloved one and the pursuit of oneself. In spite of that, the couple of actors radiates a certain brightness and warmth thanks to the magnificent static shots and to the slow rhythm that perfectly suits the film. Avé, under the appearance of an easy road movie, is a gem of Eastern Europe cinema, always keeping its sober and humble style.
