Bulgarian Rhapsody

A Film by: Ivan Nichev
(Bulgaria/Israel, 2014, 108 min, Color, Bulgarian, German, Ladino, English subtitles, Cast: Kristiyan Makarov, Angela Nedyalkova, Moni Moshonov, Tatyana Lolova, Stefan Popov, Dimitar Rachkov)

Summer of 1943. The Jews of Greater Bulgaria must adhere to the laws of Germany.  Moni, (17) a Jewish youngster from Sofia and Giogio the son of the commissar for Jewish affairs’ driver, meets Shelly (17) a Jewish girl from Kavala (Greece). The two face the values and limits of friendship, as they both fall in love with her, while outside rages their conflicted world. The Bulgarians are ordered to deport the Jews; trains traverse Bulgaria with 11,343 Jews from Macedonia and Tracia. The fate of the three youngsters mirrors the lives of the Balkan Jews during WWII, challenged with the horrors of that period.
