    A patient look at inherent cultural conflict that ends up rendering the conflict mundane and undramatic.

    I love to watch all movies using boxxy software, because it has amazing subtitles and also I use it for free.

    The overall evaluation of this movie must be a joke. This must be one of the worst movies I have ever watched in my life. Totally non-sense, awful story telling, 2 hours completely wasted.

    A group of German construction workers are dispatched to rural Bulgaria to build a water power plant. At times, the two cultures will amiably co-exist despite the language barriers, but at other times tensions, and even hostilities, will emerge. There are also tensions within the construction workers themselves, especially between the mysterious new worker (Meinhard Neumann) and the overly aggressive foreman (Reinhardt Wetrek). Definitely,not for those seeking an action flick, as this is a methodically paced and cerebral movie, where the intensity slowly builds. Successfully utilizing non-professional actors, the atmospherics and realism here are spot-on, as you feel like you are right there in rural Bulgaria. Overall,if one has the patience to get into this type of slow-burn foreign film there are rewards to be found here.

    I liked the style and the documentary-like filming, but all the tension slowly building up never find a release. Just like in real life? Probably. Still in this particular movie,this fact left me unsatisfied. Nonetheless a good movie.

    A great film, subtle but gripping.
