beautiful doc
24 October 2005 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

This documentary is one of the best pieces I've seen in the past years. I had the opportunity to see at Slamdance Film festival. It depicts the life of a mental institution in Bulgaria and the efforts of its administrator to make the life of the patients better as a business entrepreneur. The film is beautifully shot and very well crafted altogether.

The film score is also something to note. It transports you immediately to Bulgaria thanks to the mixture of local sounds and contemporary music adding a very special mood to the film itself.

I heard this film was being released theatrically in Europe. I just wish its distribution reaches Mexico. It is an inspiring film worth seeing again and again.
