Los novios búlgaros / Bulgarian Lovers
Made in Spain

At 40, Daniel is a relatively well-off homosexual from a good family who spends his free time in the Madrid gay zone with his mates, occasionally landing handsome boys, lately all foreign and particularly Slavs. Meeting Kyril, an attractive 23-year-old Bulgarian, he falls hopelessly in love. The perfect companion for a vital interior voyage, an encounter with his real needs, an uprooted, adventurous alter ego who moreover leads him to the verge of losing his safe, middle-class social status. Daniel is faced with increasingly greater dangers: he acts as guarantor with an important sum of money for his lover's suspicious activities, arranges papers for a stolen car and risks his life to get him out of jail, delivering dangerous radioactive material to the Bulgarian mafias.
Zarautz (Gipuzkoa), 1943. Over 20 years (1966-1986) and 21 movies, Eloy de la Iglesia militated in cinema of political opposition and moral subversion, offering a curious and daring view of Spanish society with movies like El sacerdote (1978), Colegas (Pals, 1982), El pico (1983) or La estanquera de Vallecas (1986). He was a member of the San Sebastian Festival Official Jury in 2001. Los novios búlgaros marks the return to cinema of this director after a long period of inactivity.
