Manly Times (Bulgarian: Мъжки времена / Mazhki vremena) is a Bulgarian drama film released in 1977, directed by Eduard Zahariev, starring Grigor Vachkov, Mariana Dimitrova, Velko Kanev and Pavel Popandov. The screenplay, written by Nikolay Haytov is based on the short stories Manly Times and Wedding from his book Wild Stories (1967).

In a colourful folklore manner, the movie presents an old tradition of stealing girls for brides that was a reputable occupation in the Rhodope Mountains region. The interaction between a brilliant literature and skilful directing as well as the memorable performances by Vachkov and Dimitrova received a broad critical acclaim and turned the film into one of the classics of the Bulgarian cinematography.[1]
