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.

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.
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.
