This was a film a whole generation grew up with. It used to be one of the most emblematic films of the communist era in Bulgaria. Widely praised and loved by the common people. True - the script was more than naive, and the characters were black-and-white and flat, but our cinema was just developing at that time and no one was bothered by the shortcomings of the film. Rather, my parents and their friend, who were children at that time, and their parents saw fellow Bulgarians fighting courageously against the fascism - something our nation was taught to be proud with. I have seen the film. NOT BAD! Even with the propaganda in it.
And to answer the previous comment - the Bulgarians care. Still.
