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.

This is a children's film where impetus derives from young actor Veselin Prahov
8 April 2005 | by (Sofia, Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

This is a children's film where impetus derives from young actor Veselin Prahov who made his debut at six in 'Dog in a Drawer'. Rada Moskova wrote both films and similarity between them lies in the main subject: the endeavor to preserve the last remains of the romantic civilization of childhood under the condition of modern city life. The action takes place during the summer holidays in a city quarter where the new blocks of flats are still surrounded by a few old houses, which still have cherry trees in the yard. The loft of one such house serves as secret hideout of group of young children. Living close-by is the well-known violinist Mincho Minchev (who plays himself in the film) with whom the children communicate well than with their own parents. The film ends with the question: what is going to happen once the bulldozers arrive and start demolishing the romantic houses which have been preserving our dreams and memories? Wouldn't they take away something of our childhood?
