Movie Info

In a remote provincial town, Gana looks after the elderly with dementia, while trafficking their ID cards on the black market. At home, she provides for her jobless mother, with whom she hardly speaks. Her relationship with her car-mechanic boyfriend is no shelter for love either - with sexual attraction vanished, intimacy is reduced to a morphine addiction. Nothing seems to have consequences on the nurse's conscience, even the incidental murder of a patient, who threatens to expose her fraudulent deeds. Things start to shake up, when Gana hears the music of Yoan, a new patient, whose ID card she's trafficked. A growing empathy for the old man unlocks Gana's drugged-up conscience, and she is ready for change. But when Yoan is arrested for fraud, she learns that doing 'the right thing' comes at a high price.


Critic Reviews for Godless (Bezbog)

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

Ivanova is a fine actor, but her character lacks dimension; the nurse's sordid environment and the abasement she endures to the point of numbness make her feel like a personification of the country's political corruption and social unrest.

It's violent and not for the faint of heart but the scenery and the cinematography is extraordinarily beautiful.

Aug 24, 2018 | Full Review…

The raw, unflinching misery of Godless' plot is accented by some austere and implacably desolate cinematography.

Dec 28, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There's nothing unusual about a debut feature suffering from formal hesitancy or thematic bluntness...But then that's the downside of the spotlight: it also highlights every single imperfection.
