13 (Tzameti) (2005)

While mending the roof of an old house, Sebastian overhears something intriguing from the residents that could lead him to some quick cash. He's not clear on what it entails, but neither are we, so it's a mysterious journey for both the protagonist and the audience. Where it leads is the kind of drama that works best the first time you see it and the less you know about it beforehand, but the beautiful B+W cinematography is such that subsequent viewings will no doubt offer their own rewards. The only telling aspect of the modest budget is during some of the FX shots, but the editing often masks them well.
