Long after the end of "Omnipresent," I still couldn't come out of a trance overwhelmed with thoughts about what awaits us beyond tomorrow's dawn. Painfully absorbed in the screens of smart devices, we slowly and surely miss the life happening around us. The dilemmas of morality were galloping mercilessly out of the screen.
In the film's almost imperceptible 120 minutes, I did not find myself shaking my head once at the all-too-familiar Bulgarian cinematic didactics. On the contrary, I enjoyed a perfectly and fully realized vision - dramatic performances and cinematography on a world level, and tension in each scene so strong that the lump in my throat broke with each micro climax. Skillfully built dramatic moments, spiced by excellent jokes, thanks to the exceptional work of the dialogists.
"Omnipresent" runs so smoothly it's almost as if it were a well-shot reality. The film unrelentingly played with my heartstrings and my mind. One moment it was tossing me wildly from one of life's secrets to another, and in another it was trapping me tightly between four walls – behind which existed far too well known and fiery occurrences.
"You should only know as much as you can bear. Even one truth too many can kill you"
"Omnipresent" rushed me into infinite self-awareness, showed my fears, and pushed my shame towards the surrounding world almost to a breaking point. It returned my belief in our native cinema's tenacity for development, showing me a non-standard manifestation of the interest in the life of others.
