Editorial Reviews

They call him Moth , a hard-luck brawler paroled after serving time for a murder he didn t commit and turned loose into a city decayed by 20 years of Communism. But in an asphalt jungle that makes its own laws, Moth must now battle his way through a cast of killers, con men, agents, outcasts, old partners and his former lover turned ultimate femme fatale. Tonight, one man will stop at nothing to correct the crimes of the past...or die trying. Zahary Baharov stars in this moody and twisted thriller from director Javor Gardev that blends elements of Eastern European urban grit with hard-boiled American noir to create one of the most electrifying international triumphs in the history of new Bulgarian cinema.

Format:DVD
My review of this movie reflects some disappointment primarily because of the gap between the official story synopsis and what the movie actually portrays. As the synopsis implies, I was looking very forward to an interesting examination of communist/socialist Bulgaria after WWII. While the movie is set in that time period, the story is much more about one guy's love of his wife, as well as the heist they imperfectly carried out. These aspects alone, however, make this a very worthy watch. Its shot beautifully in B&W, highly impressive artistic camerawork, and very rich, detailed characters. Obviously its subtitled so be prepared to read, but that's by no means a distraction. The aspect of communist commentary is definitely a secondary consideration of this film; the plot positioned this movie very well to provide a searing commentary of society gone awry, it misses the opportunities. Again, though, its a great story to watch, well done in noir style, and a great character study. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark, depressing, and painfully poetic October 5, 2012
Format:DVD
It's not a usual movie experience. To me, it was full of symbolism and metaphors--mostly political. The dry wisdom of the Eastern Block nations reverberate throughout the scenes.
The script was beautiful. One can gather several of the lines and can create a poetry. Four star, because I am naturally not a big fan of dark movies as this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Derivative but nicely styled July 14, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Noir fans will recognize the basic plot from one of the classics of the genre, but in many ways this is a fresh and original work. Curiously, it uses the sensibility of Frank Miller's Sin City stories a lot better than did the Sin City movie. The protagonist never has a chance, but he's tough enough that no one can make him do what he chooses to resist. The conclusion of the story, though forseeably depressing in part, is also a suprise triumph.

A man known as Moth gets out of prison in Bulgaria shortly after the fall of communism but finds little has changed: evil men are still in charge, including the one who sent him to commit the robbery for which he was incarcerated. Now the boss wants the spoils of Moth's robbery for himself, but will Moth give it up? How far is he prepared to go to keep it for himself? Whom can he trust? Maybe his old girlfriend? Noir fans will know the answer to that one.

Bulgarian cinema isn't known for competent, involving entertainments like this. As an American I enjoyed this enormously, though my wife informed me that she'd enjoyed many specific and cutting allusions to current Bulgaria which no doubt went right past me. A violent, fast-moving suspense thriller better than anything a Hollywood studio has produced this year.

Excellent! The story of life as it really is... A tragic comedy that is a classical lesson for the ages. Subtitles and authentic Balkan irony. Stay up late to see this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good luck with this one! August 23, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Is it that the film is foreign or just badly produced and edited? It's a trip, for sure. If you can buy it on the cheap, it's worth a look. Just set your expectations low.
