An attractive blend of basically true stories
6 January 2015 | by NozzSee all my reviews

In Bulgarian Rhapsody, we meet a manic pixie dream girl whose hobby is geography. To her, geography is an escape into fantasy; but ironically the lines on the globe prove all too real because-- this being Bulgaria during World War II-- the Jews in the older areas of Bulgaria are destined to live while those in newly annexed areas are destined to die. The movie is adapted from the reminiscences of several Bulgarian survivors, and it is a "rhapsody" in that, as the dictionary says, it "is meant to express a lot of emotion and does not have a regular form." The stories blend into each other in kind of an irregular fashion, but they occupy a firm and engrossing framework of time and place.
