Loss is one thing that, no matter where you go or what country or language you’re dealing with, everyone understands. Zsofika is packed full of powerful, moving, an intensely emotional drama that slowly builds a sad but familiar story about loss, regret, life, death and asking forgiveness. The dialog perfectly embodies the depth of the man’s emotions for his lost beloved, how it moves him to tears every time he thinks of it and the shadowy, withered old location adds to the visual relevance and emotional integrity of his situation. The use of the old film reel with the “dark dancer” was creepy, unnerving and disturbingly powerful; my favorite aspect of the whole film. Your Film Review reviewed Zsofika for Occhi Magazine. It didn’t disappoint. We highly recommend the film and invite you to view it below.
Synopsis: A man returns home after dedicating his life to war. In the now abandoned house where he once was happy, he tries to reconnect with what was lost. Remorse fills the final moments of his life as his broken promise haunts his memories.
