Well acted, and its Faustian dynamic of mutual exploitation would be absorbing enough, but as Kyril draws Daniel into ever shadier situations, the film loses its tone and devolves into absurd political farce.

Shows that Mr. De la Iglesia's long absence hasn't dulled his sense of stylish, cinematic storytelling.

The screenplay contains enough witty elements to lift it above the average sex farce.

As Daniel is drawn deeper into Kyril's web of shady business dealings, the film completely loses its way.

Bulgarian Lovers observes the interplay of sex, power and money with a cool, amused attitude and a fine sense of social detail.

Full of charm, entertaining enough as it unfolds, good looking, but not especially memorable in retrospect.

We'd gladly give ourselves over to the literate if chatty script and the generous helpings of Bulgarian beefcake, but our interest flags the moment Biba puts his clothes back on.
