Utterly Uplifting!
25 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Georgi is the head doctor at a home for men with mental illness, located in an idyllic rural setting. The enthusiasm he shows for his many schemes to combine occupational stimulation for the patients with fund-raising for the home is infectious. The restless, driven nature of his character contrasts sharply with the sleepy surroundings of this rural backwater. Paounov's delicate touch allows the patients to emerge as rounded characters with real dignity, whilst I warmed to the self-deprecating humour of Georgi and his colleagues. There are moments of real humour in what could have been a grim story - the gritty reality of mental health provision in post-communist Bulgaria. Much of the humour comes when Georgi's strong conscience juggles the professional and financial requirements of his circumstances. The over-riding message is of the indefatigable human spirit - this charming film will leave you thoroughly uplifted.
