Blades in the DarknessSeptember. 25,2022
Tirana 1997. The chaos left by the fall of communism has opened the doors to a bloody civil war. Matia, just a teenager, is harassed by his playmates. In an attempt to escape, he hides inside an abandoned bunker. In that spooky building, Matia will be the first to discover something scary and unthinkable that will change his whole life....
It is not deep, but it is fun to watch. It does have a bit more of an edge to it than other similar films.
At first rather annoying in its heavy emphasis on reenactments, this movie ultimately proves fascinating, simply because the complicated, highly dramatic tale it tells still almost defies belief.
Like the great film, it's made with a great deal of visible affection both in front of and behind the camera.
