Very good for Bulgarian movie
18 July 2015 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

I watched the movie last night, as a part of a movie festival here in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. The movie is good (for Bulgarian movie) and i actually liked it. They are two plot lines - from one side the dramatic historical facts about the Bulgarian citizens from Jewish backgrounds during the World War II and from other side it is a sweet love story ..... or actually a couple of them. The quantity of drama is significant, but there are also some funny moments about typical Bulgarian manner of living. On some places the script is a bit too colorful and some of the scenes are overacted. The acting game is very good. The roles are given to some of the best Bulgarian actors, so it couldn't be otherwise.
