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.

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.

Best Balkan film I've seen. I ve never seen such a possitive approach to amnesia. A young man lost his family and his memory in a traffic accident. And his granddad who lives in Bulgaria, goes to Germany to help him. He helps him to remember the past. And helps his grandson to have a life even better than before. A great Bulgarian film. Highly recommended...
