A nice find on Netflix. I thought “Zift” would be an old, weird science fiction, but it is more of a gritty “neo-noir” type film.
Even though the film mostly seems to be a collection of weird scenes and unlikely events, there appears to be some sort of story in it. The man we follow is called “Moth”. He was sent to prison in the 1940’ies and released in the 1960’ies. In these two decades the world has changed drastically. Communism has taken over Bulgaria and the capital of Sophia is in decay.
Everybody seems to be after Moth, but he cleverly navigates his known and his new worlds in a weird succession of black and white scenes.
