A movie that makes you feel and think
20 January 2017 | by zoreto-1See all my reviews

This movie is a journey back to happenings as they really were upon our lands a century and a little ago. It shows very well the spirit of time and people, their wills and lives. Very far from our reality now, it is a movie for the ordinary Bulgarian back then, with the paths in front, the choices and their price. A movie that makes you feel and think. A movie for honor and ideals. Deep, powerful, interesting, influencing. A film that is great to see in the modern Bulgarian cinematic art. Among the best Bulgarian movies ever made! Good dialog and meaningful characters. Great set of actors, strong roles! Great job for the whole team! Worth watching!
