The correct term is film, not movie N o v i n i t e. I get that you're trying to be trendy, but movie is an Americanisation of the word, just as is your American style of language model on your website, that you choose to use. That isn't proper and correct English. Anyway, the film that you speak of "Zhaleika" in this article, is a documentary film of this woman, showcasing her life, and by default of others, in "modern" Bulgaria. It is not a movie.

Apart from that, I did watch it, it's only 25 minutes long; but I'm wondering and curious about the part when she was at the cemetery visiting her grandfather, why did she cross herself from left to right instead of the Bulgarian Eastern Orthodox way, from right to left? I doubt that she'd be a Catholic and if she was of the Orthodox religion, why doesn't she know how it is done?
