on beautiful country and hopeless youth
tells a story about a few young people, some with broken hearts, some with broken dreams, all facing hopeless grim reality of the corrupted society they live in.
taking refuge at a beautiful deserted beach, were they can feel free, far away from problems that their country has been struggling with for the past 20 years, but the same problems pop up their ugly face even in this forgotten piece of paradise unlike many modern Bulgarian productions acting is pretty good, not deadly stiff.
the location, one of the very few on the Bulgarian sea coast, left without massive ugly concrete buildings (at the moment of filming), is beautiful, and let me assure you - life there really is very easy going, much like depicted in the movie.
so - a great effort, congrats to the team
