Goofs

The film contains several factual mistakes that are very easy to be checked, because there is a video and photo archive of this football match between FC Makedonia and FC Levski in the archive ot SS.Cyril and Metodius National Library in Sofia. For example, nowhere in the meeting is not waving Nazi flags, like shown in the movie. The film argues that the players of FC Levski raise their hands in a Nazi salute "Heil Hitler", but as the link below shows that hands of both of the teams are raised and it is not a Nazi salute, but simply hands raised in the air. At the second photo from the link below you may see that actually as a Nazi salute "Heil Hitler" have raised the players of FC Macedonia. One more factual mistake is that at the movie is shown that the Bulgarian administrative and military authorities are deporting the Jews from Skopie and two more cities to the gas chambers of Treblinka. The truth is that the Bulgarian police at this area is under german control. Factual mistake is that on the carriages used for the Jews deportation is written "BDZ" (Bulgarian State Railways), but at the photos from the same period is visible that this is not true, because in fact the carriages arrives from Germany and they belong to the Third Reich.

Touchfull movie
25 October 2012 | by samarakovaSee all my reviews

No matter of the review that i'll write for all the viewers of the movie i think that if you are not Macedonian you won't get the point of this movie.The movie have strong behind and a message full of anger and revenge of what they where doing to Macedonia in the past.By revenge i mean that the director want the viewers to see how humiliating was the past for our people and how they apart our land and whit those a lot of families where separated,a lot of love stories where broken,a lot of dreams where gone.That's why i think this movie is something that describe us like a nation a history of people that survived this and now are only memories left for tell. About the actors i think that Sasko did well his role,but Karerina was week in some parts,i guess that's because this was her first movie.The songs in the movie are also very touchable part, and i think that there is no Macedonian who watched the movie and not get thrill all over her/his body.I recommend the movie for all, for me was great.

p.s Sorry if i have some grammar mistakes.
