Hitchhiking across Bulgaria to attend a friend's funeral, a college boy falls in with the title character, a 17-year-old runaway and compulsive liar. They share a boundless curiosity that causes them to make dumb mistakes, and director Konstantin Bojanov, working mainly in level-headed long takes, depicts their foolhardiness neither romantically nor pathetically. This quiet road movie derives its strongest effects from the diverse terrain: as the characters travel from cities to plains to the Balkan foothills, Bulgaria comes to seem like a wide canvas on which they're painting themselves. In English and subtitled Bulgarian.
Director: Konstantin Bojanov
Producer: Konstantin Bojanov, Dimitar Gochev and Geoffroy Grison
