Movie Info

A road movie set in present day Bulgaria, a country remains optimistic, mainly because all the realists and pessimists have left. At a meeting with his banker, a small business owner, who drives a cab to make ends meet, discovers the bribe he will have to pay to get a loan has doubled. The ethics board that reviewed his complaint about extortion now wants its share of the action. At his wit's end, he shoots the banker and then himself. The incident sparks national debate on talk radio about how despair has taken over civil society. Meanwhile, six taxi drivers and their passengers move through the night, each in hope of finding a brighter way forward.

Critic Reviews for Directions (Posoki)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

Plays more like a series of shorts of variable quality rather than a coherent whole. Still, Komandarev's empathy for people struggling to survive as best they can is palpable and admirable.

The film flows with a dizzying rhythm although the moral burden and certain underlings conspire a bit against the end result. [Full review in Spanish]
