María Luisa García,
This is an epic and dramatic film about the social tragedy of the Spanish Revolution. It is a screen version of one of the most popular novels by Dimitar Dimov (190 -1966). The action takes place during the Civil War in Spain. The accidental meeting of British noblewoman Fanny Horn with Father Eredia, a Jesuit monk, reverses their destinies. The attraction between them is very strong, yet the monk is fanatically devoted to his faith. Influenced by his religious strength, Fanny Horn follows him to a place where a typhus outbreak is raging. Pena Ronda is a camp for typhoid patients. The conditions are horrible, and the death is creeping around them. The shadows of the terminally ill move silently amid the rusty barbed-wire fences and the hospital shacks while on the outside the people of Spain are being drowned in blood.

People outside Bulgaria who don't have the chance to watch and to FEEL our movies are very deprived, indeed. Doomed Souls is a masterpiece, a touching and thrilling film that makes you experience an extreme manifestation of love - the forbidden love between Fani and Erredia. You are so overwhelmed by the whole story that you simply cannot be indifferent to their doomed love. Not only are you taken in completely by the movie, but also you cannot help but fall in love with either Fani or Erredia. You go through every single word, every obstacle with the protagonists and that's where the amazing plot(book) touches your heart with its deep feelings and fascination. A very sad movie, though. My eyes are always brimming with tears... And I am afraid of watching it too many times, lest it loses its effect over me... I simply adore it! Watch it and you won't regret it! It's not just a love story or the next drama in your recycle bin! It's way deeper and affecting! See for yourself!!!
