Physical Description
DVD-ROM (86 min.)


On the 9th of September 1944, the day that Soviet troops liberated Bulgaria, partisans come down from the mountains. Mustafa, a young partisan, and Pshenichka, a young partisan-girl and his lover are among them. The first days of popular exhilaration and the activities of the new authorities are shown through the eyes of Mustafa. His constant imaginary companion is Matei – a dead partisan and intellectual, who killed a child by mistake during a mission, due to his lack of experience and subsequently had committed suicide. Mustafa judges the acts of his comrades and his own doings in an imaginary dialogue with Matei. The days after the revolution are marked by retaliations on the part of the partisans for the disgraceful actions of the fascist police and the murder of fascist collaborators orchestrated by the communists after the takeover of power. The film has been censored with 19 cuts, mainly for its reevaluation of the partisan activities and its expressive style. Particulartly contraversial has been the scene of a dance of a fascist with a dead undressed body of a partisan woman. Full version.
