Georgi i peperudite

Georgi and the Butterflies

 
The film is a sometimes hilariously funny group portrait of the director of a crumbling psychiatric hospital, its wards and staff. Psychiatrist and neurologist Georgi Lulchev is presented as a great idealist and dreamer. For therapeutic and practical reasons, he wants to involve his patients in business enterprises. He tirelessly searches for sponsors; he understands accounting and methodically fills out his betting tickets. For his aim is to turn the old monastery-hospital into a dignified and modern home for his wards. He sees them as his family and he tries in every way to make the conditions for their existence in involuntary confinement more humane. His tolerant wife‘s comments introduce a humorous tone to the film.
