A group of German construction workers start a tough job at a remote building site in the Bulgarian countryside. The foreign land awakens the men's sense of adventure, but they are also confronted with their own prejudice and mistrust due to the language barrier and cultural differences.

Critic Reviews for Western

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (5)

A culture clash defined by an incredibly strong first-time performance, it's continually more emotionally surprising than its dry packaging lets on.

A slow burn of a drama with a restrained tone that may put off some viewers, but which will captivate those who responded to its low-key wavelength.

"Western" is as precise as a dropped pin on a GPS map, which makes its sense of mystery all the more powerful.

February 15, 2018 | Full Review…

There are no stagecoaches or six-shooters in this sharp, simmering drama of German-Bulgarian discord, but the spirit of John Ford graces it.

Top Critic

A naturalistic, almost documentary-like feature that slowly builds.

May 18, 2017 | Full Review…

[Meinhard Neumann's] languid but confident gait is pure Randolph Scott, while his face, usually unemotive, breaks out in deep creases on the rare occasions he smiles: it's a John Ford landscape in itself.
