“We left part of our souls in the film and I hope young people are interested in it.” – The Times of Israel
Bulgaria’s official selection for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. A beautifully rendered coming-of-age tale of unrequited love, set amidst the turbulence of the Bulgarian alliance with Nazi Germany. As the shy and artistic Moni falls for Shelli, Moni’s friend Giorgio forms the final part of a doomed love triangle. The flowing evocation of innocence and first love is a heartbreaking portrait of Bulgarian Jewish life, capturing its exuberant vibrancy against an inexorable backdrop of tragedy.
