Storyline

This is the story of Mityo and his son Vasko, who live in a poor area near the Bulgarian-Turkish-Greek border. Mityo has lost his wife, the respect of his 18-year-old son and the job that enabled him to pay off the loan for his mortgaged house. Desperate, he accepts a proposal from his former military commander (Predrag 'Miki' Manojlovic) to smuggle illegal Syrian immigrants across the border he once had to defend. The road leads across a peak called The Judgment, a place full of dark memories from thousands of years of history, but also from Mityo's own past. The revelation of his terrible secret will force him to face the past, in order to regain his internal peace and find forgiveness from his son. Written by el_manzana

User Reviews

 
One of the best Bulgarian films since 1989
15 November 2017 | by orlin-40757See all my reviews

The Judgment is a very good cinematic experience. Very well written and expertly directed by one of the best Bulgarian directors nowadays. The cast is excellent. Every aspect of the film is very well executed - music, camera work, editing, make up and sound FX - you just feel that you are part of the story.

The style is dark, but everything is presented in the wright way. There is enough excitement and suspense moments. Very strong dialogues and character performances.

A must watch - don't miss it.
