Bulgaria, Germany, Romantic drama, 2010, 94 min
In the early 90’s, four Bulgarian friends who are all skateboarders are finding ways to make some cash with the dream of opening their own bar, which will be called Tilt. An accidental meeting between Stash and Becky leads to a passionate love affair. Suddenly, the friends are caught illegally distributing porn films. Becky’s father, a police colonel, takes the case personally and threatens them with prison. The only way to escape his grip would be for Stash and Becky to stop seeing each other. The gang decides to run away to a small German town. Being poor emigrants, they find themselves in a series of funny and absurd situations. The gang finally decides to go back. Meanwhile, Bulgaria has changed completely, and so has Becky. “Tilt” is a romantic tale of the sacrifices we make for love.
