By The Grace Of God

by Petrova, Ralitza



By The Grace Of God follows the tragic odyssey of the character Jürgen, whose attempt to make contact with his imagined mother, the Queen of England, leads him to a sense of personal crisis, of aporia. Petrova’s film portrays Jürgen as a tormented outsider, ill at ease with the travails of contemporary life, who is destined to be ‘a man out of time’, a nobody searching for his illuminated heroes.
