A poor railway worker’s world is turned upside down when he finds a huge pile of cash abandoned on the tracks.   Set against the backdrop of contemporary Bulgarian society, where corruption and bureaucracy are givens, GLORY is a mysterious journey of one man’s race against time to expose the truth and regain his dignity.

”INCISIVE, FUNNY, CINEMATIC PARABLE.   The variable incongruities of GLORY give it a queasy power uncommon in contemporary cinema.” – Glenn Kenney, New York Times

“WITTY AND INGENIOUSLY CRAFTED.” – Yonca Talu, Film Comment

“The film quietly builds to a feeling of inexorable disaster, guided by terrific performances as well as spot-on editing.” – Jay Weissberg, Variety

”Its rough-hewn naturalism belies an exquisite sense of pace and a sneaky breed of gallows humor.” – Christopher Gray, Slant Magazine

Language: Bulgarian (English subtitles)

Length: 1 hr. 40 min.
