(1951)

Country: Yugoslavia

Genre: Adventure

IMDb

Synopsis

High up in an alpine valley live two men - the good herbalist Kosobrin, and the evil hunter Bedanec. Bedanec has a captive servant girl by the name of Mojca who, one day, meets Kosobrin and confides in him how difficult her life is, causing the old man to give her refuge. Bedanec then captures the brave and fearless shepherd boy Kekec (Matija Barl), and offers to release him if he will help him recapture Mojca. Naturally, Kekec (being brave and fearless) refuses, and is taken captive himself. Meanwhile, Kekec's family and friends - including his best friend Rožle (Joze Mlakar) - have come to believe that Kekec must have had an accident in the mountains and died. Will Kekec ever see his village again?...
