The sorrowful Bloom


SAMODIVA takes place in a world of poverty, “Lacaille” games, forest nymphs, and hunters.  Alioth (Georgi Lukanov), the youngest of all hunters, is the one who never joins the gambling but listens to the conversations spoken while the cards are on the table. Broke and hungry, when he hears the men mentioning a forest “beast” in the form of a woman, one that people would pay a fortune for, he sets off to hunt. Said to be the best hunter in town, he does find it. Instead of hunting, however, he falls in love. And as Beau Taplin said:

 “It’s easier to destroy something you love than it is to watch it leave”
