The Best of Best
4 September 2016 | by nikolaekalchevSee all my reviews

If you think of it as a parody of patriotic historical films This is one of the best Bulgarian comedy I've ever seen.

Truly a masterpiece of humor. And a pioneer in new eastern European parodying, which is very rear in are society nowadays. Most memorable of all characters are Plachkov's Levski and Genchev's Moham Bey really fun and demented personalities. I think they represented well the director's vision that He probably doesn't have and He probably did it only to capitalizing from the shared patriotic view of many Bulgarians who donated 1 500 million to his great cause. Or maybe He is just a shitty actor. Everything is plausible. None the less this is a hilarious movie in my eyes.
