Storyline

A boy (9 years?) and a rather younger girl lost their families in an air raid. They have heard about a valley where there is always peace and fancy that this is the house of the boy's uncle. They start wandering for the valley. At the same time an airplane is shot down and the black American pilot jumped by parachute. He finds the children at a ford. There is absolutely no danger. But the girl is standing in the middle of the river, scared and crying and neither daring to go forth or back. The pilot cannot abandon the children although they will reduce his chance of escaping. Both the Germans and the partisans know that the pilot had survived. Who will find him first? Several things happen in rapid succession. The children and the pilot find the uncle's house, which had since a long time been abandoned. The Germans arrive and catch the pilot. The partisans attack and liberate the pilot, who joins them. But during the fight he is soon deadly wounded and orders the children to run away.... Written by Max Scharnberg, Stockholm, Sweden

Golden ages of Slovenian film-production
10 June 2000 | by andreslo2000See all my reviews

Yes. Even Slovene film production was once a good one. However, a long, long time ago. Films like Na svoji zemlji (On Our Own Land), Dolina miru (Valley of Peace), Ne joci, Peter (Don't Cry, Peter), Srecno, Kekec (Good Luck, Kekec) and Vesna were the best Slovenian cinematography had ever produced. A new wave has came out recently (Kosak, Sterk, some films of low budget production) and it gives us a hope for better days in Slovenian film, but those films made 5-15 years after WWII are still remaining the law for Slovene film-makers. Dolina miru: Simple, but yet,good story, superb act esp. John Kitzmiller and young Evelyne Wohlfeiler as Lotti. If you are interested in Slovenian film, I highly recommend you to see DOLINA MIRU!
