Set in a series of taxicabs, DIRECTIONS (2017) is an episodic film that lets loose with much black humour alongside dark stories of disillusion, betrayal and despair, to draw back the curtain on a nation’s collective howl of pain.
Using the circumstances of a taxi that picks up disparate strangers as the vehicle to transition through a series of stories is not a new idea. Jafar Panahi’s 2015 film TAXI comes to mind as just one recent example. The device may not be original to Komandarev, but he brings poignancy and a zesty sense of humor to DIRECTIONS, while exposing the unfunny fallout from a failing economy, political corruption, and mass immigration to greener pastures by those able to manage it. http://bit.ly/2xtglqD#BulgarianFilm #CEFF2017 #EuropeanFilm More Info: http://bit.ly/2fR6zDqCalgary Bulgarian Society
