It's the tenth-year anniversary of the music, dance and poetry academy AkaDaMuS. New people on stage bring in a fresh burst of improvisation. Love is both reality and an act of creating art. As in the Pygmalion myth, we see the dance choreographer En En and his trainee Agnessa bringing together the two opposing principles of Apollo and Dyonisus, eternity and transience, matter and spirit, art and kitsch. The film references a range of poets and playwrights such as Moliere, Shaw, Debelyanov, Valery Petrov, Marko Ganchev, Konstantin Pavlov. Dances feature famous Bulgarian rhythmic gymnasts such as the champion Lilly Ignatova as the female lead.Written by

In this hybrid between ballet, musical and cinema,one of the most talented Bulgarian poets M. Basheva joins hands with the genius director Djulguerov and the coach of many, many gymnastics champions Neshka Robeva to create a movie that represents truly the best of Bulgarian talent and culture. Starring as Agnessa is the winner of 19 gold medals Lilia Ignatova who currently leads the Bulgarian rhythmic group to new world titles. Opposite her is the actor Ivaylo Hristov,one of Ignatova's love interests in the 1980's, still an idol for many theater aficionados. Just watch the expression on Ivaylo's face as Lilia dances around him. You will identify with both of them.
Bianka Panova, another dancer in the movie, won her world title in 1987 with a record of 8 perfect 10.000's.
This is a very genuine movie where all of these people really show the best they can do...and their best is much more than many can imagine.
