The film is a screen version of the novel by Dimitar Dimov (1909-1966) and deals with the conflicts and contradictions in Bulgarian society during a period stretching from the early thirties to the end of the Second World War.
This is an epic and dramatic film about the social tragedy of the Spanish Revolution. It is a screen version of one of the most popular novels by Dimitar Dimov (190 -1966). The action takes place during the Civil War in Spain. The accidental meeting of British noblewoman Fanny Horn with Father Eredia, a Jesuit monk, reverses their destinies. The attraction between them is very strong, yet the monk is fanatically devoted to his faith. Influenced by his religious strength, Fanny Horn follows him to a place where a typhus outbreak is raging. Pena Ronda is a camp for typhoid patients. The conditions are horrible, and the death is creeping around them. The shadows of the terminally ill move silently amid the rusty barbed-wire fences and the hospital shacks while on the outside the people of Spain are being drowned in blood. Against the background of this inferno, a passionate crime is committed. It is the work of English aristocrat Fanny who is in love with her victim-priest Eredia. There ... Written by

a masterful exploration of war, hypocrisy and love
This is a true masterpiece of a movie and it a loss to film lovers every where that it has never really been shown (and is not likely to be shown) outside Bulgaria. Set during the Spanish Civil War it tells the story of a British humanitarian (Fanny) who falls in love with a Jesuit priest (father Eredija). Through this relationship the film exposes the unnatural nature and thus the hypocrisy of extreme religousness. This effect is magnified by the historical sub plot of the movie (the war). What draw and repels the two characters to each other sets up the discussion of an individuals' relationship with the world around her/him and themselves. Fanny is a 'lost lamb' in a society of individuals with few morals her acquaintance with the Jesuit priest (Eredija) enpowers her to be true to herself and her morals. While Eredija is fearful of her love of him and her determination she gives him what religion has forbidden joy and humanity. The conflict that arises from that becomes more and more important as the viewer starts to care for the two main characters and sympathize with them not because they are essentially good people but because the strange beauty of their love for each other is unvailed This no feel good movie, but deep though provoking and surprisingly satisfying for all its harsh realities.
