I most certainly have! This movie is definitely one of 10 most beneficial films for Slovenian cinematography. And it along with the series of films about the young errand-boy/shepherd Kekec are also the only film pieces of Slovene origin that in fact have a story.
Set during WWII, it depicts a tale of two experienced soldiers (miners in fact) that are sent on a very important mission (which they definitely do not perceive as such) - they have to take three children (including a very young Peter) to liberated grounds. The mission they (in want of bigger, more sounding action) first face with frustration and contempt gradually evolves and so does their relationship with their young wards.
A truly remarkable film (in Slovene terms) with interesting and well-crafted characters (I must mention the outstanding and hilarious performance of otherwise esteemed actor Zlatko ugman here), a good plot, very nice fluency and most importantly none of those long lasting silent frames lacking significance that otherwise spoil yet sadly determine Slovenian films.
