It's difficult to enjoy this film, which only means that it's not shallow and always leaves an impression. it definitely added something to my life. despite its being slightly exaggerated, the themes it hit are very real and relevant. contrary to what what some people say, i believe that this is one of the best pieces of Bulgarian cinema. it is not naive and can be taken seriously. in it we see an example of a tragic relationship between two young people, with manic love-bordering-on-obsession on one end, and low self respect on the other. there are a lot of sweet and endearing moments throughout the movie as well and it is most definitely worth your time.
