Storyline

At the airport, Slavi tells his life's story to a young customs officer. As children, Nelly promises Slavi to marry him. The two teenagers are passionately in love with each other but after some time Nelly falls in love with another guy. Slavi takes up drinking and gets into trouble with the Bulgarian militia (police) because of his family background. This is when he decides to defect to the West. After staying at a refugee camp in Austria and another desperate love, he sets out to the United States. There Slavi makes some new friends who help him buy a truck. He hits the roads of America, where he comes across an Indian who sells him an arrow. The vender tells him this amulet will bring his love back. Eventually, Slavi comes back to Bulgaria, where communism has collapsed. His beloved Nelly lives alone with her daughter. One day Slavi meets her again...

A movie to make you think about your own lifetime
3 December 2011 | by (3rd Dimension) – See all my reviews

As pointed out in the very beginning, this is more a story-based novel-type movie than a regular step-by-step deployed movie. Many would just neglect it or outline it as the next communist-era related low-budget production... and they will be deeply wrong. Of course only people who have lived in this time would probably best understand it or recall certain events of their own lives, still the movie itself is quite comprehensive to be only looked at one way.

It is about love, social and power positions, political and mental walls, friendship, relatives, family, life and reason to proceed. I personally remained with many mixed senses after watching it, seeing so many characters and elements of communist and post-communist reality, together with such of the capitalist society, all looked through the veil of human nature and personal relationships. Maybe the most underlined sentence after having it watched is related to a Bulgarian saying - the pear doesn't fall far beyond its tree. Still, some pears are meant to fly! This is not the next popcorn movie to laugh at while writing quick sms-es on your smartphone! You will understand what I meant once you have watched it...
