Directed by: Valeska Grisebach
Staring: Reinhardt Wetrek & Meinhard Neumann
A group of German construction workers are sent to a remote part of Bulgaria to build a hydroelectric power station. 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. Relations deteriorate when a group of workers led by Vincent annoy a group of women swimming nearby. The loner Meinhard is the only one to try and make friends. The stage is set for a showdown between the two men competing for recognition and favour from the local villagers. This is not at all a “western” but with references to the genre in the excellent cinematography of Bernhard Keller.
