Amigo is a former spy, an honest criminal, a "kung-fu" fighter (...wherever I land my fist, grass will never grow again...), a poet and a local hero from Tolmin. Amigo tries to preserve his moral firmness and his lifestyle in spite of the unstable social circumstances in Slovenia, a country in transition. The price he is forced to pay for his moral stand is very high. He hits a wall head-on - symbolically and literally. Just as the French medieval poet Francois Villon, he appears to be serving both, God and the Devil.

Amigo Dimitra Anakieva in Simona Obleščaka je preprosto pomemben film. Režijsko, montažno in dramaturško premišljena celota predstavi redko preobrazbo človeka iz dokumentarca v junaka, oziroma antijunaka iz filmske fikcije. Duhovito delo, ki ga od začetka do konca odlikuje dosledno filmsko razmišljanje obeh avtorjev in njunih soustvarjalcev, nas je presunilo z neposrednostjo in dostojanstvom.
