Storyline

Dreaming of the West, Boryana is determined not to have a child in communist Bulgaria. Nonetheless, her daughter Viktoria enters the world in 1979, curiously missing a belly button, and is declared the country's Baby of the Decade. Pampered by her mother state until the age of nine, Viktoria's decade of notoriety comes crashing down with the rest of European communism. But can political collapse and the hardship of new times finally bring Viktoria and her reluctant mother closer together? Written by John Nein, Senior Programmer (Sundance Institute)

manipulative speculation miles away from art
4 September 2014 | by constsvetlaSee all my reviews

I myself am a product of the same historic period and the country this film comes from.The late socialism has tormented our destinies in a much more perfidious way than the scriptwriter and her advisers have tried in vane in the most unlikely and very clumsy way to convince us.Too primitive with some post WWII mockery and far from make believe Coca Cola symbols which work fantastic in "Gods must be crazy " but is pitiful in this attempt for epic drama.Probably the filmmaker thought that in many hours (almost three hours) of torturing the audience with all versions of simple manipulations can give an idea of 45 years of communism.My personal advise to the rest of the viewers is skip the enormous effort of three endless hours of boredom for the sake of a good Russian film by great Michalkov.
