FEATURE DOCUMENTARY 84 Minutes International Premiere
Is there an algorithm for love? Atanas, a Bulgarian engineer living in Finland, thinks he has an answer—he’s found a wife for himself, after all—and he wants to share his findings with some of his geeky bachelor friends. Together they carry out a series of experiments to crack the code and develop a new, scientific approach to romance. But when date conversation keeps turning to the latest PC games and heavy metal music, it’s clear that Atanas has his work cut out for him. Directed by Tonislav Hristov, this charming and lighthearted documentary follows Atanas and his band of eager test subjects as they research pheromones, chart brain waves, and try out “hacks” on blind dates in their quest to find love in the modern world.
