Storyline

Three young girls try to flee from unemployment in the country: they arrive in the capital city of Sofia to look for a job and a different future. The three of them try to survive, fighting a hostile reality which threatens to break their innocent and bright ideas of life, imposing on them its vicious morality. One of the girls does break and becomes the love-toy of a pimp. Prompted by her betrayal, the second one gets involved into a love triangle and attempts suicide. The third girl puts up a struggle for her closest friends' redemption. Written by Georgi Djulgerov <major1@mbox.contact.bg>

Watch it, and if you are Bulgarian than don't miss it
16 August 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Most of the shows on American television won't be so funny if watched by non-US audience. Why? Simply because this audience doesn't have the deep knowledge of all these influential people and all these events that are present inside the American culture. Sure they will laugh but when it comes to some certain jokes they just won't get it. That's how you'll feel when you watch this movie and you're not a Bulgarian. The movie is great and its fundamentals can be understood by every human being but its real strenght lies in the cultural references. If you've lived in Sofia you will just feel how it's all there and it's all so real. The fast pace of life, the misery, the arrogance of the people towards the humble person coming to the big city. I've got to say that I liked "Mila from Mars" but "Shivachki" tells you a more realistic story, one that is very common in Bulgaria.

Thumbs up for the director and the acting. 8/10
