15 January 2006 | by sasaanstisSee all my reviews

This is a really good movie. It s the film of my childhood, and I suppose that everybody in Slovakia and Czech Republic know this movie well. It s a cult film, some kind of fairytale, but not a common one. For the director Juraj Jakubisko is typical some oddity in his works,you have to see it to understand,some people look up on him as an eccentric, but I m sure many people will enjoy it. At least it s not suitable only for children:-)For these who do not understand who Perinbaba is, she s a woman giving snow to the earth and people of course. Baba means woman in slovak, some kind of an old odd woman, or a slang word for a teenage girl, and perina means a duvet, comforter(?) I can proudly recommend this slovak movie, featuring foreign actors.
