It is a pleasure to prove once again that Ukrainian projects of any format can be popular worldwide. We hope that Spanish audience would regard Love in Chains just as highly, and would follow the complex plotline of the heroine just as ardently, as the Polish and Ukrainian audience did,” – comments Evgeniy Drachov, international sales manager at FILM.UA Distribution.
