I have at last found the DVD for sale of Osadeni Dushi. I was in Bulgaria on holidays back in 1985, and heard the theme for the soundtrack played in the hotels where we ate. The hotels had musicians in quartets playing classical music. I have since tried many times to find it, and just recently got the correct spelling for Mitko Shterev (I thought Mitkosterev) and when I searched, found the DVD for sale. I have ordered it, but I am afraid that apart from the music, I can only guess the story from the reviews. Is there any chance that the film could be sub titled sometime. It seems a great story. It would be good also if the film could be dubbed in English. I think it would travel well.
