Storyline

On the night of graduation prom the credit to the English Language School, Loris tries to escape to the West, but he is betrayed and captured. Charged with political motivation, Loris is sentenced. The year is 1986. The slogan written in red letters onto the wall in the prison is: If you don't know - we will teach you, if you can't - we will show you how, if you don't want to - we will force you. It is put into practice. Torture, cynicism and physical violence turn the talented young man into an impassive and coldblooded observer. The Berlin wall is falling. Loris is granted an amnesty. Already free, he is alienated and indifferent to the world. In his desperate escape from reality Loris revenges for his ruined life and takes the road to his own destruction. But he meets love. Loris tries to find salvation in yet another flight... Written by Georgi Djulgerov <georgidjul1943@gmail.com>

I feel so sorry for the Bulgarian cinema
27 March 2007 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

It is nearly 18 years after the fall of communism and still they cannot make a single good film. I feel so sorry for my fellow compatriots and for the Bulgarian cinema as a whole.

What can we see in the film - a hilarious plot, sucked from under the script-writer's nails. Utterly illogical and lacking any credibility whatsoever.

A medium-level directing - with very rare moments of decent cinema - the rest is just mediocre rubbish.

A cast above average - with Deo, Gyrbov, Dicho and ESPECIALLY Rachkov making credible characters (and lacking anything to help them in the script) Still, there is a hope - if we can put an 2,00 (on the scale from 2,00 to 6,00) on the previous attempts of post-totalitarian Bulgarian cinema - this one rises to 2,49 - a way to go, but there is noticeable movement above the dead-point. And just that - a movement. No more.
