Dont let that title mislead you, this unassuming yet brilliant and striking film is much more than an attempt to modernise that most American of all cinematic traditions.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. The stage is quickly set for a showdown when two men begin to compete for recognition and favour from the local villagers.Free of affectation and distinguished by a generosity and sincerity exceedingly rare in cinema, Western's poignant celebration of human resilience is nothing short of spectacular. This is one of the best and most overlooked films of 2018.
