The aim of the film is to show the connection between modern history and traditional culture . For this purpose we use the absence of linear time . The action takes place simultaneously at all times . The characters are first adult , then children. Seasons change not as should follow one after another. This must emphasize that the action takes place simultaneously at different times . And thanks to this, the little celebration in the small Bulgarian village can be easily connected with the holiday painted by artist such as Bruegel.
