TILT - how the changes of 1989 have tilted our personalities and society
I saw TILT last night and undoubtedly this is a good Bulgarian movie
with a story line (which is hard to find in other BG movies) and acting
that is more good than bad. Actually the young actors that have not
appeared in theaters have not been ""corrupted"" by theater directors,
so they play satisfactorily well in the movie.
The film shows the transformation in Bulgarian (and Eastern European)
society after 1989, focusing on the young people''s state of mind,
susceptibilities, hopes and dreams, thus pointing to what one can
expect the future Bulgarian society to be. Young and fragile boys,
easily manipulative by the more insolent ones, fall victim to the
rising mafia, a social stratum that rose from the military circles and
still dominates the public domain of Bulgaria today.
There is of course a love story going on, which develops despite the
girl''s tyrannic father, who is a symbol of the powerful of the day,
the remnants of the past, all shaping the future of a couple strongly
in love. The two lovers act well, although the love story between them
could be developed a little more, I felt like I wanted to see more of
it and wanted to know the girl better.
Anyway, I think the movie is beautifully shot, showing the misery of
the country but in a nice way, not self-pitying or anything (which is
common for other BG movies). I liked it that the movie makes you laugh
at many points (the humor is relevant for Bulgarians) and the audience
did indeed laugh a lot. At the end some people even clapped their hands
I give it 6 out of 10, rating it as an entry in IMDb, not as a
Bulgarian movie. If I had to rate it compared to other Bulgarian
movies, I would probably give it 9/10
