Storyline

Margarit and Margarita are high school senior students. They are madly in love. And so proud and independent that they are often in trouble with their parents and teachers. They quit school to live life their own way, only to face a world or corruption and brutality. Margarit would make no compromise and would not get involved in a game with shady rules. Margarita is more willing to do so in the name of their future together. A big manager takes her under his wing and shows himself to be a corrupt womanizer. Margarit cannot stand the debauchery of their 'protector' and kills him. After his sentence he puts an end to his life and unable to live her life this way, so does Margarita. Written by Georgi Djulgerov <georgidjul1943@gmail.com>

To "suddesu"
6 March 2005 | by tonypopSee all my reviews

Well, I can hardly add something more than this few Bulgarian guys have already written! It's kind of impossible for someone who have had only read about that time in Bulgaria(especially),or just "imagine" it somehow, to simply have even a clue about it. So,addressing precisely to this user "suddesu" (sorry if I type it wrong, but I'm kind'a angry now- 'cause of what you've wrote about the movie..)-man, why don't you just keep on watching all the Hollywood's s**t and all the "things" that you prefer to see and expect!?!? You really shouldn't post any of what you did! BELIEVE ME! "Bulgarian director Nikolai Volev made the last film to be shelved under Communist rule and the first one to be unachieved a couple of days before the demise of old regime. Margarit and Margarita went on to become one of all-time successes in Bulgaria, reaching 2.5 million admissions from a population of eight million." ""When the film was completed and shown to the authorities, it was immediately banned. A special screening was organized for 15 generals, and I had the feeling I was leaning close to a charge of high-treason." "Less than two years after, when the Berlin Wall had fallen, it was suddenly on show in a small town outside Sofia. The Chairman of the Committee of Cinematography felt where the wind was blowing and wanted to show his support of democracy and freedom." It took Volev two years to write the script and another two to raise the then US$500,000 budget for Kozijat Rog - a 17th-century story of a four-year-old girl who loses the will to speak when witnessing the rape and murder of her mother. Her father dresses her as a boy and trains her to kill, but she also wants love and tenderness.

"In my country, where 500 years of Turkish occupation was replaced by Germans and later Russians, it is very difficult to separate personal problems from the political reality. Compared to this story, Margarit and Margarita was a fairy tale," he concluded(Nikolai Volev)."
