Storyline

A 16-old girl runs away from a dangerous man and gets into a faraway village near the border. Soon she finds out the only inhabitants there - nine old men and women - make their living by growing marijuana and the village is actually an illegal plantation belonging to the man she runs away from. However, she decides to stay there and nothing remains the same. A girl is afraid of her past, both disgusting and attracting her. She is afraid of her present, both suffocating her and giving her wings. And she is afraid of the future as it projects both her nightmares and her dreams. This film is about the only 'bullet against fear' - love. Written by Georgi Djulgerov <georgidjul1943@gmail.com>

Surprising, but truly influential
18 June 2005 | by deni4ka_kolevaSee all my reviews

Mila From Mars gives us hope that the magnificence of our past cinema experience can be restored to life. The director proved that money is not that big of a factor when aiming at touching our hearts. I was flabbergasted when I found out that that Mila, the main character, was actually at the tender age of 16. A scary thing, however, is being able to realize that you know such people after having seen the collective image of the "bad, corrupted" man. And though shocking, it is also very romantic, and somewhat optimistic. It shows Mila growing from a confused teenager to that special condition she has captured all over the walls of her gift-room - "mother". In addition, we see her finding her soul in a relationship so beautiful and at the same time without the old cash-winning veneer. Truly speaking of our community, it also intrigues with the mysterious way the villagers get their bread and butter :)) (nevertheless, not everything should be revealed!). To put an end to it, you will not regret spending your money or time as you will get something extraordinary, different and memorable! Enjoy the movie and come on over for more Bulgarian cinema :)))
