We would rarely ask ourselves if children in the cities were happy, in want of space to play, lonely, with their parents preoccupied, sad as they grow up all alone. Seven-year-old Lin is one of the millions of such kids in the so-called civilized world. He is smart, sensitive and inventive. Together with his friends he makes his games and child's dreams come true, though for just a while. Hidden in the attic of a deserted house, the kids experience unforgettable moments.

Smart and eloquent
12 July 2010 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

A brilliant film from an era when Bulgarian cinema did not need to be pompous to be poignant. Held together by the lead Veselin Prahov this seemingly simple story delivers on so many levels. Today it works both as a light-hearted retrospection and as incisive social commentary. The tone is pitch-perfect throughout and not a single scene seems out of place. I was perhaps slightly more impacted than the average audience member would be, as the film is shot just a block away from where I grew up as a kid myself, in a house not much different from the protagonist's, but regardless this is a wonderful thought-provoking picture that is so much more than the sum of its seemingly modest parts.
