Victor returns to his childhood home in Bulgaria for his grandfather's funeral, and decides to stay for the summer.

 

 

“Liuben,” directed by Venci Kostov, offers a sensitively handled story of two men from vastly different worlds finding love amidst the picturesque mountains of Bulgaria. Dimitar Nikolov stars as Victor, a young man who returns to his childhood home for his grandfather’s funeral, only to find himself entangled in a summer romance with Liuben, portrayed by Bozhidar Asenov, a Roma boy selling fruit along the roadside.

The film delicately navigates the complexities of Victor’s journey as he grapples with his identity and the contrasting landscapes of his life in Madrid with his partner Jose, and the slow-paced village life in Bulgaria with his father Kaloyán. As Victor’s relationship with Liuben blossoms, the societal conflicts surrounding their love serve as a poignant backdrop to their burgeoning romance.

Nikolov and Asenov deliver compelling performances, capturing the magnetic pull between their characters and the tension that arises from their differing backgrounds and circumstances. The push and pull between Victor’s attraction to Liuben and Liuben’s guarded demeanor create a captivating dynamic that drives the narrative forward.

While “Liuben” excels in portraying the central relationship between Victor and Liuben, it falls short in fully exploring Victor’s character and motivations, particularly regarding his relationship with Jose in Madrid. The rushed ending leaves viewers wanting more insight into Victor’s inner turmoil and the choices he makes.

Nevertheless, the film’s exploration of societal expectations and the challenges faced by Liuben due to his Roma background adds depth and resonance to the story. The budding romance between Victor and Liuben serves as the film’s focal point, keeping viewers engaged and emotionally invested throughout.
