One have to fight for the thing he loves
4 April 2005 | by majorSee all my reviews

This film is the work of the best-known master of Bulgarian films for children, Dimitar Petrov, who won great popularity with 'The Captain' and ' Hedgehogs Are Born Without Spines'. In this film children are tying to find a home for the stray dog. In their efforts to find a home for the dog the children are actually defending their right to a world of their own in the midst of modern everyday life. They are wagging an involuntary struggle for the restoration of their link with nature. Finally the children lose their battle. However. the film does encourage the young viewer, teaching him to fight for the thing he loves. It also suggests to parents that children's desires often contain natural wisdom and reason.
