A movie to make you think about your own lifetime, 3 December 2011
Author: amazian from 3rd Dimension

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...
