[Credits] [Tickets & Termine] [Trailer]

Blaga is a seven­ty-year-old recent­ly wido­wed for­mer tea­cher and a woman of firm morals. When tele­pho­ne scam­mers con her out of the money that she had saved for her husband’s gra­ve, her moral com­pass slow­ly beg­ins to lose its bea­rings… Stephan Komandarev’s past films have sys­te­ma­ti­cal­ly cri­ti­ci­zed the inau­s­pi­cious social situa­ti­on in post-com­mu­nist Bulgaria, and Blaga’s Lessons is no dif­fe­rent. In this evo­ca­ti­ve dra­ma fea­turing a mas­terful per­for­mance from Eli Skorcheva as Blaga, Komandarev aims his lens at the lives of today’s seni­or citi­zens – a vul­nerable group whom poli­ti­ci­ans so often pro­mi­se the right to a digni­fied life… but rea­li­ty is much different.
