Storyline

Back into 60s. While out there, in the West, they are listening to The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, the hippie movement is at its height, pupils in Bulgaria are obliged to be shingled, to wear full-dress uniforms and sing military songs. But for how long? A group of pupils from a language school believe they have to live differently. They are seeking for ways to shake off everything phony, to be candid with each other, to be part of a wider, much more motley and interesting world. Some of them pay a high price, other experience cruel worldly lessons, but they at least made their best to save face. Written by Georgi Djulgerov <georgidjul1943@gmail.com>

...A hard story about one impossible love, under the best Bulgarian rock music
8 February 2006 | by mdanovskiSee all my reviews

Yeah! I'll be glade if it possible for many more peoples to enjoyed with this good Bulgarian movie. It is an old film, made so many years ago, but it's still capturing viewers in my country! It's a witty sports and love story with the classic love triangle and many wonderful moments! This is a really story about the live in Bulgarian schools and pensions... And of course this is a hard story about one impossible love. There's a great performance of the actors... And I think the music from this movie is very good too. Listen Shturzite - the one of the great BG rock bands from the 70-80's years! Thanks; With Compliments!
