  kubal's animation film
by Skipka

Nevertheless, Palo Bielik as famous Janosik directed documentaries and later made third version of Janosik that was
filmed in Koliba Studios 1962-63 as 250. anniversary of Janosik's Death. This was finally a true legend, great historical
fresco partly action film. This version belongs to the treasures of Slovak cinematography.
Another treasure dealing with Janosik's theme is anime film of Viktor Kubal named "Zbojnik Jurko"(Padder Jurko). It depicts
realistic fairy tale :) social motifs but all with a great sense of humor. Kubal got many prizes for this film in e.g. in Teheran,
Montecatini, Gijone, Lyon etc... It is definitely the best animation film in Slovakia. Kubal also made a film of
Bloody Duchess of Cachtice, another great animation film.
The parody on Janosik was depicted in film Pacho, hybsky zbojnik, what is my favourite.
