Storyline

This film takes place in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. Matic lives in a large neighbourhood of concrete blocks of flats with his mother. As his father is temporarily working in Libya, they live alone. Matics' otherwise monotonous life changes dramatically when he is chosen to feature in a film. At the shooting he meets Milena, a girl his own age whom he begins to like. When the shooting is over, the film company gives him a present, a huge black Newfoundlander. Although his mother is not really pleased about it, Matic brings the dog home. And that is just the beginning of their adventures... Written by Princeska

New kid in town gains adventures & new friends with the aid of a Newfounland dog.
13 July 2006 | by michael_mulliganSee all my reviews

Back in 1979 (I was only 10 years old then) the BBC showed this film as a four part serial in it's original dialogue with English narration by actor Keith Barron. Matic has just moved to an apartment block with his mother, dad is away on business in Libya!. He instantly falls foul of the local tough kids & also acquires a Newfoundland dog called Jakob. The local kids, after a run-in with the police, are forced to patch up their differences with Matic and new friendships are forged. Matic's mother soon finds out that having Jakob is a breach of their tenancy contract & the dog must go. Matic & the kids do their uttermost to save Jakob from eviction. Alas it fails, and Matic's mother informs him that Jakob has gone to a new home. A jolly tale with a rather sad ending but my somewhat vague memories of this film are fond ones nevertheless.
