A series of cab rides in night-time Sofia give a well-observed impression of Bulgarian society. "In the many interior shots in cars, 'Directions' recalls the work of Abbas Kiarostami and Jafar Panahi, but its night-time setting and the idiosyncratic individuals it portrays also bring to mind Jim Jarmusch's 'Night on Earth'." (Variety)
