Excellent, excellent and again excellent!
22 October 2009 | by slavov_111See all my reviews

Well, there are movie and TV classics in any nation; among the Bulgarian classics there is no other historical TV series as prominent and as legendary as this one. These TV series made Vasil Mihailov the notorious Bulgarian actor that he is and that is for a reason. Indeed, compared to any contemporary multi-mill. dollar TV production, "Kapitan Petko Voivoda" fades in terms of extras, preparation and additional details, but nevertheless this production has its own precious value for anyone who calls himself or herself Bulgarian.

There is something profoundly tragic in the last several episodes (the time of the "free" Bulgaria), but this is also what makes the entire production so true and so far reaching. Indeed, in most of the times there are no happy endings and this is absolutely true about the Bulgarian political history, part of which is reasonably well represented in "Kapitan Petko Voivoda".

Whatever these TV series may be, with all of their shortcomings, they have formed my understanding for Bulgarian nationality and for theatrical performance and this is how it will always be. I hope that most of the Bulgarian moviegoers, who have seen this production, also feel the same. And as for Vasil Mihailov, he will always be Kapitan Petko Voivoda for me, as well as for millions of Bulgarians.
