a very funny story..
22 December 2004 | by martinaskrobanskaSee all my reviews

If you have seen Todor Kolev 's acting before you would probably know that this is his masterpiece.. The movie is incredibly hilarious, one of the funniest Bulgarian movies ever made. But if you are not familiar with the Bulgarian way of life in the 1930s maybe you would not find this picture so amusing. All in all it's a great moral story and even if you do not know anything about Bulgaria, just take a look at the film.. you'll definitely end up laughing with tears streaming down your face.

I give it 10/10 because it is one of the few Bulgarian movies which will never be forgotten.
