  • saitosouta's rating of the film Hristo

    Filmul acesta descrie partea întunecată de Sofia, care este vopsit purpriu deschis la dimineață și ruginit la noapte, prin o privire a unui băiat fără adăpost. Realism minuțios ca frații Dardenne și solitudine pustiu-lirică amestecat în lumea cenișie, băietul cade de la prăpastie a societății. Foarte vioi. // 朝は薄紫、夜は錆色に染まるソフィアの暗部を、1人のホームレス青年の眼差しから描く作品。ダルデンヌ兄弟的な徹底したリアリズムと寒々しく叙情的な孤独がくすんだ世界で交わり、青年は社会の底辺へ墜ちていく。鮮烈。

  • Mario Tomchev's rating of the film Hristo

    Between Dardenne brothers and The Tribe, there is Hristo. Stunning triumph in this feature-length directorial AND actor's debut which won prizes for Dimitar Nikolov and the film debut itself at the Golden Rose festival.
