"Heartening and well photographed love-story..."
21 January 2012 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Bulgarian director Konstantin Bojanov's award-winning feature film debut tells the story about Kamen, a young art student who sets out to hitchhike from Sofia to Ruse in order to attend his best friend's funeral. Out on the road waiting for a ride, he encounters a 17-year-old girl named Avé who tells him that she is going to see her grandmother who is terminally ill. Kamen believes her, but when they get a lift and end up in the same car, she begins to tell the driver untrue stories about herself and Kamen which amazes him.

This charming and reflective road-movie has a shifting and impending atmosphere, draws two converging studies of character and is a well-paced, humane and romantic drama which provides an intimate portrayal of a coincidental meeting between two opposite personalities who comes to know one another on a journey of discovery, which leads them through various Bulgarian landscapes. It is memorably acted by Ovanes Torosyan and Anyela Nedyalkova who delivers heartfelt and engaging acting performances in this notable Bulgarian production.

Konstantin Bojanov's subtle directing focuses on the dynamics within interpersonal relations and the condensed screenplay which he co-wrote with Arnold Barkus, depicts a rare connection which evolves between a provocative girl who lies with good intentions and a modest boy who finds himself drawn to a stranger who annoys and concerns him. A low-keyed, heartening and well photographed love-story which touches on universal themes.
