It is one of those movies which I was unable to watch without wincing. The main idea is taken from Marx: folk as moving force of every historical event. If you don't understand it immediately, don't worry you'll be explained it again and again! All the historical personalities look like sketches on themselves. Russian tsar Alexander the Third looks and talks like idiot. Heroes are divided into 2 main parts bad ones: those who do not think in categories of "folk" and "people", and good ones: those who understand that all the wars in history are won by folk. The good thing about that movie is that it reminds us about almost forgotten page of our history. It is true. It was exactly Russians (with a little help of Austria) who helped Bulgarians become independent of Turkish. Even if Russians followed their own interests in that case it doesn't make the event less important for Bulgarians. The most terrible thing about that movie is that it is just completely boring!
