Synopsis

A group of German construction workers start a tough job at a remote 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.

MUBI's take

Returning to filmmaking after 11 years away, Berlin School filmmaker Valeska Grisebach became the toast of Cannes with Western. This deeply human reinvention of the titular Hollywood genre is a tense and powerful study of European identity and masculinity not unlike Claire Denis’ Beau travail.
