Tilt is a love story set against the backdrop of the changing political and social environment in Europe in the late 80's and early 90's. Can this love survive the challenges of emigration, a violent homeland and an immoral social atmosphere?
Set to the backdrop of political and social change throughout Europe in the early 1990’s, this coming-of-age drama is about a group of young friends in Bulgaria. Stash, Gogo and Angel have dreams of opening up their own bar, complete with pinball machines, which they would name Tilt.
Things get complicated when Stash falls in love with the beautiful Becky, whose father forbids the relationship, and the group are caught illegally distributing pornography. The three friends and Becky decide to head to Germany, where the Berlin wall has just come down. But when Becky’s military father finds out, he pulls Becky off the train and tells the men they are dead if they ever return to Bulgaria. Forced into exile, they end up in a small German town, finding themselves in a series of increasingly absurd situations. With Stash desperate to be reunited with Becky, the group eventually return to Bulgaria but things have changed, and their old enemies have becomes still more powerful.
Tilt has played well in it’s home-country, proving a commercial success, as well a critical hit, and has gone a long way to proving the robust state of Bulgaria’s filmmaking sector. It is a powerful and funny film about friendship, love and growing up – universal themes that will play well across the world.
