Pacala is an important hero in Romanian popular tradition. He is smart and always makes fun of everything ridiculous about people, like stupidity, greed or vanity. He's also prevailing against all sorts of dangerous situations involving evil and materialistic people. So besides the jokes, the movie has this philosophical layer about living with a free spirit and a love for the nature and the whole world in order to live a joyfull and fulfilled life. Filmed in a very beautiful part of Romania in 1974, the movie had an important success at that time and is considered one of the most loved movies in Romania ever.
Like the hero, found in many folk stories and jokes, the movie forwards the spirit of happyness, freedom and pure connection with the nature, forgetting about times and governments.
