France Stiglic – Volca nok aka Night of the Wolves (1955)


This is Macedonia’s contribution to what was once the cottage industry of ex-Yugoslav Partisan war movies.

I will simplify this one for the outsider that is not well verse in Macedonian history, particularly WWII – Macedonian partisans take up the struggle against Bulgarian fascists that occupy Macedonia. This was not by any means an easy battle since Bulgaria was the only German ally that did not send troops to the Russian front. Thus, the entire Bulgarian military machine could, without distraction, dedicate its efforts to crushing the Macedonian resistance.

Language Macedonian

  1. Thank you for sharing this breathtaking film! France Stiglic is incredible and I am so glad to watch another one of his films! I absolutely love how this direct plays with different Yugoslav landscapes and melds melodrama with war films… It’s a pity Stiglic is this underrated.
