The Father

Synopsis

Believing that his late wife is calling him from beyond the grave, widower Vasil makes plans to visit a well-known psychic to make contact. Reluctant son Pavel agrees to ferry his imperious father across post-Communist Bulgaria to the meeting, but along the way, their battle of wills leads them into comically absurd misadventures. Wry and observant, this sentimental road-trip dramedy (winner of the top prize at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival) artfully chronicles one family’s dysfunction.

“This off-the-map road movie is a humane, compassionate, character-driven delight.”
