It's sad, but optimistic picture. Taking bribes, committing a crime without confessing it and proclamation of false moral that you don't believe. A movie about the meaning of fatherhood, and manhood, altogether. About the point of living a decent life. This movie had problems with the sensors in the Communist era but, although some time passed before it was released, it happened. They released it and it had immense success. Unfortunately, today, there isn't any interest in showing some meaningful films, and most of the Bulgarian pictures are just pretentious crap, an awful versions of Hollywood worst pictures. If you want to watch an example of good Bulgarian movie, "To Love in Spite Of" is the best choice for me. Hope you will enjoy it.
