Zift (2008) Film. Director : Javor Gardev

“Zift” is a genre mixture of neo-noir and sots-art. The story unfolds in one night. Moth is freed on parole after spending time in prison on wrongful conviction of murder. Jailed shortly before the Bulgarian communist coup of 1944, he now finds himself in a new and alien world – the totalitarian Sofia of the 60s. All hell breaks loose as soon as Moth walks out of jail. He tricks the bloodhounds of the communist state. He spends his first night of freedom in a breathtaking chase with time, trying to avoid fate, as he gets closer and closer to his ultimate demise. His frantic flight draws the map of a diabolical totalitarian city — decaying neighborhoods and gloomy streets, the bathhouse, the city canal, the hospital, the cathedral, the pompous works of communist architecture centered around the Mausoleum, smoky joints, bars, and finally — the graveyard. In the pursuit of truth, Moth runs into a bizarre parade of characters – agents, medics, barflies, outcasts, gravediggers and other species of the asphalt jungle. The action thickens through avalanching variety of twists and turns, sudden revelations, flashbacks, lies laid bare, hallucinations, and sensual encounters with the former love. Finally, the story ends inside the gravediggers’ trailer where all secrets are revealed. (Imdb)

  1. I was basically wondering if you ever thought of modifying the page layout of your blog? It is very well written; I enjoy what youve got to say. But maybe you could create a a bit more in the way of written content so people might connect with it better. You have got a great deal of wording for only having one or two graphics. Maybe you can space it out better?
