Urok/Урок: A schoolteacher in a small Bulgarian town is forced to pick up the financial slack of her unemployed husband – learning, and teaching, an important life-lesson along the way.
The story of a devoted and strong woman, whose ethics and morals are tested by the fateful unfolding of events. Inspired by a true story, prominent in the Bulgarian media at the time. Only the second feature film by the wife-and-husband directorial duo.
Perhaps the most outstanding example of New Bulgarian cinema. Manages to transcend it’s genre through clever direction and great performances. Garnered a deserved success throughout the festival circuit. One of the best films of the year. Highest recommendation!
The Lesson Cast: Margita Gosheva, Ivan Barnev, Ivan Savov, Stefan Denolyubov
