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

A great story about an ordinary boy and his love to his dog.
10 June 2001 | by tupaczfSee all my reviews

I have seen this movie 3 times and every single time I see it, i know I will have too watch it many times, because it is great. Matic, 10 year old boy falls in love with a dog and it seems they are best friends. But there are problems because there are people in that block where Matic lives, that won't let the dog live in that block. And then starts the battle between the kids and their parents.

A great Slovenian movie, made in 1977, for many Slovenians the best film made in our country. You have to see it although you are not a Slovene. I give this movie 8.
