Storyline

The billy goat has come down to earth with a mission - to prevent people from finding a treasure hidden near an ancient Thracian sanctuary. The trumpet player, Jonah, moves into the remains of his grandfather's house near where the treasure is hidden. In a tunnel under the house he finds a stone with a bird engraved on it and a map with an inscription in Arabic: "To have a house of gold, fall onto the sky and find the twin!" A copy of the same map brings Rumba and Emma to the same place. Rumba is Bulgarian and a passionate treasure-hunter. His wife is American and studies Bulgarian folklore as a way to fight globalization. Rumba wants to buy Jonah's property so he can find the treasure. Jonah, whose flat in town was taken away from him by other foreigners because of debts, is afraid that the newcomers will deprive him of this property, too.

I think that this movie is one of the most beautiful Bulgarian movies i've ever seen. Everything was made so delicate and touching, especially the scene in the well. The actors were great. I like G. Dyulgerov especially for his work with the actors. he make their act natural, that's the difference between him and most of the other Bulgarian directors, who stake on the NATFIZ school way of acting. I 'm expecting the cinema performance to watch it again. When i saw Kozelat in the Film fest, my first words to my friends were - you all gotta watch this film, this film is different. The way of the directing is different, the way of acting is powerful. I have to say, that this movie gave me hope for future Bulgarian films.
