„Block“ can be best described as a dark romantic film or a dramedy. It is composed of multiple intersecting sub-stories, all happening inside the confines of an apartment building in Sofia during lockdown. The film begins and ends with Iva and Viktor’s dream, and their story reminds us that when two people share strong feelings for each other, anything is possible.
