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.

The film was shown at the recent Sofia film festival. And it is a big nothing. Probably this comes from the script that fall to pieces and is very slow. Besides it is said to be comedy. The Goat continues the old fashioned deja view films of some false ethnographic folklore museum stile that no one cares about at all. It is a shame for a generally good director to be connected with such a failure. But probably it was worth from producers side as the film is a remarkably simple production for a very high budget for Bulgarian standards and is covered entirely with governmental grant. Acting is equally bad. But we are used to that in Djulgerov's films. It is not for the first time that the director tortures the audience with non professional actresses to experiment the level of their endurance. Compliments deserves only the black pedigree goat and his owners. Whether the content of the narration of the black goat is worth? I think it is not .
