Storyline

The script by Eva Borusevicova describes the true story of Janosik, the XVIII centuries outlaw, who was prowling through Slovak-Polish border. The story of Janosik, a legendary "Central European Robin Hood", based on a real XVIII century documents and on a romantic legend, operating with a very subjective, original lyricism: the hero is tragic and at the same time very contemporary: he could be an American boy, burned by communing with cruelty of the war comes back from Iraq to the city ghetto and becomes a leader of a gang.

high ambition , decent result
23 June 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Juraj Janosik is one of legendary heroes from the Central Europe. a precise type of national hero, clever, seductive, good guy against the authorities, fighter for national ideal. so, it is not an easy choice to propose the right manner to tell his story.maybe only a viewer from the Central Europe understand this detail. Agneszka Holland propose an interesting way - introduction of viewer in the universe of XVII- XVIII century using the traditions, myths, slices of every day life. and the right actors. the mixture of magic and heroic facts, the details from an ordinary existence of a young man living in extraordinary context is a wise option. for to be understood by large public. sure, for many viewers , the film is far to be great. but it is a real good film. portrait of a world. realistic image of the lead character. useful as ethnographic trip in a period of Central Europe history. it is bot the first film about Janosik. but it is one of the most ambition projects about the theme. and that fact is important. because it is an instrument to discover a Slovakian national symbol . and to remind one of the fights for freedom from a region of Europe. a not insignificant detail - he is not a version of Robin Hood or Fanfan la Tulip. his specific is the best part of film. and that does it a not bad proposition to the large public.
