The action centers on Ran and his schoolmates who are in the last year of school. They are only a few days away from the day when they will have to make a decisive choice: what are they going to be, and what is more important, how are they going to live? In the whirlpool of meetings with different people and mainly with three women, the filmmakers are trying to see the future of their main character. His schoolmate Mariana wants to lead him into family life. The pop singer Neli is the very incarnation of adventurism. However, he is most deeply touched by the salesgirl in the near-by coffee shop Tintyava. This is a wordless affair in which each glance exchanged betrays the piercing excitement of impossible love.

The best movie I've ever seen!
21 September 2005 | by me_elseSee all my reviews

When I watched it for the first time, I was so amazed, so I watched it over and over again on the next days. Surely, I didn't expect to see something so wonderful, so natural, so genuine and fine. The most amazing thing about that movie is, that it shows a reality, that is away forever and that can never be real again, things, that are so distant to our lives now, that it seems like we live in a distant age. And in the same time, so many things are exactly the same as now, so you can understand what's the significant things in life. This movie amazes me with its genuine and palpable romance, its sensuality. It's wonderful how the actors express their characters's feelings, I can just feel the same emotions. In some scenes, their emotions are so strong, and the actors play so well, that the result is one fascinating emotional bouquet.

There's one demerit in this movie, and it's that it can be hard understood from non-Bulgarian spectators.

However, the play of Sashka Bratanova and Filip Trifonov is more than wonderful, it's brilliant. That's my favourite movie!
