Storyline

Born in a small village, Yordan has to live and work in the nearby town. Only on the weekends can he return to his native village. He travels by a bike and observes the nature and the animals around him with overt sadness. In the village arrives a young pharmacist and she rents his house. Soon both of them fall in love. In order to be near her, Yordan tries to persuade his colleagues to move one of the workshops from the plant to the village. But they are all used to living in the town now and decline his offer. Yordan realizes that he cannot demand impossible things. Written by Georgi Djulgerov <georgidjul1943@gmail.com>

2 October 2004 | by majorSee all my reviews

The film belongs to the so-called 'migration group' films in Bulgarian cinema. Both thematically and by the genre it occupies an intermediary place between the dramas examining the break up of the patriarchal tradition and the satirical films about the adaptation of yesterday's villagers to the condition of urban life. The protagonist and his family have recently moved to the town, but every Sunday he gets on his bicycle and rides back to his native village. During the week he is a worker, but come Saturday and his soul is filled with a longing for the lost paradise of his countryside. It is here, in the little orchard of his father's house that he gets involved into beautiful, late love affair with a pretty chemist. But the girl remains only for a short time; her infatuation is short- lived. Will he manage to adapt his delicate inner world to the new urban life? His neighbor, also a peasant, does not feel the change at all. He is raising pigs between the blocks of flats and will not be bothered by either memories or dreams of past. We see different human characters placed in the same situation, opposite views of life arising at a given stage of socio-economic development.
