Storyline

It is June 2nd, in recent days. People walk on the streets; a boy hurries for a meeting. The hooters in honor of all Bulgarians, who have fallen in the quest for freedom, can be heard. Memories burst into people's minds... Behind the prison walls six anti-fascist women await the execution of their death penalties. They were accused of anti-government activities. The tortures are inhuman, but their spirits are unbreakable. They are all executed, but the fight against the regime continues. The movie ends in our time. The hooters fall silent and the people set off to their paths, but the heroic deeds of the perished are not forgotten. Written by Georgi Djulgerov <georgidjul1943@gmail.com>

In this film Beauty, Good, Tradition and the National Character are set against a background of fierce brutality.
26 September 2004 | by majorSee all my reviews

This is another of Binka Zhelyazkova's poetic films about the anti-fascist resistance. The scene is set in the prison. A group of women are awaiting imminent execution. This is a film essay whose form is notable for free associative thinking and deliberate expressive conventionality. Many of the episodes convey a peculiar allegorical meaning. The birth of a baby in a condemned cell, the celebrating of the first steps of the child and the 'fire dancing' have a ritual character and are associated with traditional features of Bulgarian characters. The imaginary 'fashion show', the flowers drawn on the walls of the cell and the nursing of the baby on the very eve of the execution convey the sense of a symbolic victory over the forces of darkness. The almost unreal scene of the school recital involving association with Jeanne d'Ark and the French Revolution introduce the theme of the role of ideals in the history of mankind. In this film Beauty, Good, Tradition and the National Character are set against a background of fierce brutality.
