Storyline

A 16-old girl runs away from a dangerous man and gets into a faraway village near the border. Soon she finds out the only inhabitants there - nine old men and women - make their living by growing marijuana and the village is actually an illegal plantation belonging to the man she runs away from. However, she decides to stay there and nothing remains the same. A girl is afraid of her past, both disgusting and attracting her. She is afraid of her present, both suffocating her and giving her wings. And she is afraid of the future as it projects both her nightmares and her dreams. This film is about the only 'bullet against fear' - love. Written by Georgi Djulgerov <major1@mbox.contact.bg>

A good Bulgarian movie
29 January 2007 | by (New York, USA) – See all my reviews

you wouldn't see a film like this one come from a Hollywood studio, but it is very much alike any other Bulgarian movie, made in the last 10-15 years. it tries to be moderately honest (while many other modern time Bulgarian movies overact in being too honest), tries to be humanly warm (while so many others are simply too cold and heartless), and tries to show an unexaggerated view of the life in Bulgaria (many recent movies are simply too filled with cruelness, violence and aimless, faceless people)

it succeeds in this for the most part. i am a Bulgarian and try to watch many Bulgarian films, so this one tells me nothing new, but i can certainly see an improvement in the movie making in Bulgaria:

although the fake symbolisms so common in Bulgarian cinema are still present, although actor lines are still mostly raw, there is a progress in the story telling, progress in the movie production

i give this movie a rating of 7.5, and hope that the next new Bulgarian movie i watch will deserve at least a 9

peace
