Storyline

Bulgaria, the night of October 18, 1922. A rampageous young man - an American, is forced to get off the Orient Express at a small station. The chief of the railway station and his daughter are quite unwilling to put up the stranger. Gradually, the American wins their trust. When the father understands that his daughter has decided to go away to Paris with the American, he makes a potion to sedate him and gets him on a train on the sly. In the morning all that has left from the guest is a piece of paper, which reads "Ernest Hemingway". Written by Georgi Djulgerov <georgidjul1943@gmail.com>

The story of a woman's isolation.
6 February 2009 | by simon-bensassonSee all my reviews

An outstandingly well-told story of an event lasting only a nighttime. The hero of the event is not the person playing the presumed Hemingway but the stationmaster's daughter - a modest, highly cultivated, educated and indeed wise person, liberated in most meanings of the word - trapped into a small provincial town in the aftermath of the Great War (with Bulgaria on the losing side). Impressive acting by both the beautiful Pletnyova and Chanev (playing the father/stationmaster), masterful direction by Ovcharov. Finally if I were a critic asked for which aspect should this film get an award - I would hesitatingly say for the cinematography: The story takes place in the span of a single night in a small railway station without electricity. The cinematographer managed to turn that from a potentially unnerving experience (for a whole hour and a half) to the conveyance of a magical and nearly nostalgic atmosphere. The only reason for my hesitation is that there were so many other good aspects too. I saw this film at the Thessaloniki (Greece) film festival and, as far as I know, it collected no awards at all. I cannot exclude that it may be my own judgement which is blunted - but I do so wish it were distributed so that I can see it again; I suspect it is one of those films in which you discover something each time you see it.
