When people talk about film noir, few mention this gripping and stylistically bold movie by Binka Zhelyazkova. A town at night, long shadows, tilted shots, a haunting scene by torchlight... We Were Young has shades of The Third Man, and is a great entry point into the films of this legendary director.
