The film exploits the far-off Balkan customs of revenge which is preserved in present days mostly in Northren Albania and it is an attempt to impress the foreign public with history which is not very profound. Behind this ordinary Balkan history in the movie (a history about vengeance and love), there are a dose of propaganda of present Macedonian doctrine. The authors of this production transfered a part of the present political realities in Republic of Macedonia upon the history and talking about some Ethnic Macedonians, different from Bulgarians in the very beginning of 20 century. Furthermore the film is not very correct with the dates (years). If you compare the dates in the movie you will see that some of the persons must be very old (but they aren't) or the action takes place in the years when the Republic of Macedonia didn't exists and the answer of question "Where are you from?" was "Yugoslavia" (in the movie isn't thus)... From the historical point of view this movie is a mess.
