"Baklava" – first ever Bulgarian CULT movie!
13 February 2008 | by p-anderson63See all my reviews

"Baklava" became the first ever Bulgarian CULT movie even before its official release in Bulgaria.

I've seen it in Karlovy Vary film festival last year. A true masterpiece, with amazing visual style, unique soundtrack and perfect acting - especially the little fellows. I think that "Baklava" – the first work of the young Canadian / Bulgarian director Alexo Petrov - has more truth, heart and beauty that most movies I've ever seen.

I'm not surprise that "Baklava" gains controversy in its own country – the story shows the extremely difficult life of the "Bulgarian invisible children". But still there you could find the deep hope of the authors – one day all this might be changed…

Don't miss the chance to discover the lovely tale about two brothers whom meet each others for a very first time. Together they start a wonderful trip. Searching for an buried treasures they pass through a journey full of adventures.

I've been waiting for so long to see such a beautiful, sincere and touching road movie!
