The National Cinema Council has picked Bulgarian Rhapsody as the Bulgarian movie to participate in the race for 2014's Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Bulgarian Rhapsody, a co-production with Israel is the last part of a trilogy directed by Ivan Nichev dedicated to the rescue of Bulgarian Jews during WWII.

The film tells the story of two adolescents, Moni and Zhozho, who meet 17-year-old Zheni in 1943 and with whom both fell in love. The events that follow unfold while Bulgaria has to decide on the deportation of 11 343 Jewish citizens in Macedonia and Thrace.

The three young people's fate reflects wartime life in Bulgaria.
