Excellent play
20 October 2004 | by rharbovSee all my reviews

This is an amazing comedy, based on a famous Bulgarian novel. Baj Ganyu is the name of a doltish and arrogant peddler that travels across late 19th century Europe. He falls into different comic situations as the civilized world is in total contrast with his character. He is also a collective character of all the worse features some Bulgarians have. This movie also shows another typical Bulgarian feature - the ability to make fun of yourself. Admirations for Georgi Kaloyanchev's incredible play.

Don't miss that movie. You are not gonna really understand it if you are an American :) It is a different story there.
