Neither the sweeping European vistas nor the masterful Serbian actor Miki Manojlovic can save this Bulgarian road movie from its treacly sentimentality.

It's lovable in a way that's sometimes goofy, sometimes sad, always optimistic.

Audience Reviews for Svetat e golyam i spasenie debne otvsyakade (The World Is Big and Salvation Lurks around the Corner)

The world is big, was a tremendous Bulgarian movie. I have not seen much of Bulgarians movie but this one was really enjoyable.Excellent plot which was filled with necessary details,flashbacks about these families past.The acting was amazing, beautiful scenery, specially the scenes where the grandfather and grandson was riding in the Alps.They showed how life was compared to a game of backgammon. The dice will be the destiny and you decided how to move your checkers in order to win. If this movie succeed in being an Oscar nominee it will be a honor for the Bulgarians because even if it doesn't win, Bulgarians showed here that they can also produced good movies.
