This TV movie opens with a Hefner-like magazine publisher, who’s just turned forty, answering his doorbell. Into his bachelor pad pops a young, bikini-clad girl with a bow fastened around her waist; she sings “Happy Birthday”, then plants a kiss on the startled Long. The publisher suspects that his buddies have set this up, but in fact Valentine is as much responsible for the surprise. A country gal, she has come to the big city in search of a husband, and she’s hoping that by presenting herself to Long, she’ll be launched on the road to romantic fulfillment. More whimsical than sexy, The Girl Who Came Gift-Wrapped was another pre-fab ABC Movie of the Week.

Gratinirani mozak Pupilije Ferkeverk is a short experiment as weird and extravagant as its incomprehensible title. Brains, made in collaboration with an avant-garde theatre troupe by the name of Pupilija Ferkeverk, can be viewed as a recording of a carefully constructed performance, a spontaneous ritual or simply a bunch of longhaired, sea-hugging naturists tripping, as a passionate plea in favour of individuality and freedom and an angry cry against any kind of authority.
A middle-aged Bulgarian is watching the change of the guard in front of the Buckingham Palace. For no apparent reason, while looking, in his mind he gets back to his childhood in the little Bulgarian village he grew up in.

He ponders over that life of no brilliance, where people plough, harvest, marry and die, celebrate or grieve. Miracle are also worked, conceived in a unlimited child’s imagination. It is the child’s perception of the world that helps us to give a meaning to the major questions of human existence.
