Masculine tensions and cultural difference reach boiling point in this sizzling, brilliantly observed western from director Valeska Grisebach, where migrant German construction workers are pitched against villagers in Bulgaria.

When a group of German construction workers start work on a hydroelectric plant in the remote countryside of Bulgaria, tension brews when they immediately adopt a sense of superiority against the locals. These tensions are only worsened by former legionnaire Meinhard, who borrows a white horse from a local fixer...

With naturalistic performances (featuring a largely non-professional cast) and gorgeously photographed countryside, this is a memorable and satisying update of the western and a bold look at masculinity, community and conflict.
