What’s in a game? For a young man, who has left his country behind, lost his memory and forgotten his love, the game might be the only way out. This is a story about a Bulgarian boy who grows up to be a German man.

Nice little movie. It was my first bulgarian film. I was excited about it. Was a little like Amélie, the sequel. The soundtrack, the childhood memories, etc. Very endearing, shed a couple of tears...very nice film indeed.
It's not a bad movie but I found it too predictable and full of tacky music and stereotypes. Like it's the simple things in life that matter, everyone in a position of authority is mean and evil, Bulgaria is very idyllic, Germany is a shithole. You get the picture. Acting, directing, camerawork is average at best, but the real mediocrity lies in the script, as there is never any real conflict between the two chaps.
A film without centre and focus. Wow, it was so unbelievably overestimated in Bulgaria that I expected far too much... But it turned out to be rather unconvincing in terms of story and psychology of characters. It was quite politically tendentious as well. It was also unpleasant hearing the two main protagonists speaking Bulgarian so poorly.. These are undoubtedly nice Serbian actors though
