Storyline

Margarit and Margarita are high school senior students. They are madly in love. And so proud and independent that they are often in trouble with their parents and teachers. They quit school to live life their own way, only to face a world or corruption and brutality. Margarit would make no compromise and would not get involved in a game with shady rules. Margarita is more willing to do so in the name of their future together. A big manager takes her under his wing and shows himself to be a corrupt womanizer. Margarit cannot stand the debauchery of their 'protector' and kills him. After his sentence he puts an end to his life and unable to live her life this way, so does Margarita.

on "Margarit and Margarita"
12 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A poignant story of teenage love and rebellion, Nikolai Volev's film pictures the corruption and moral decay in the late years of communist Bulgaria. "Margarit and Margarita" was banned immediately after it was screened by the authorities and released at the end of 1989 to large critical and box- office success. "Margarit and Margarita" constructs a bitter "fairy tale" that challenges political debates on the role of the individual in an oppressive society. Colored by references to local problems and processes, the film offers not only a genuine rendering of a collapsing regime but also a touching observation on the failure of human values and ideals.
