This one is sequel to wonderful movie Medena veza. Unfortunately, it has lost most of the spirit of its predecessor. The great themes of love and honor are being dealt kind of ironically. Here, the focus is on the idea: you can be free only when you follow the rules of the society. There's nothing much wrong with that. Bad luck this movie was made in 1970's – time of strict "normalization" (renewal of communist control over Czechoslovakia). Orlie pierko is not bad or dull as propaganda films from the 50's. It just wants to show that police force is good when you are good citizen. But, when you know it was the police state, it just leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Under these circumstances, mountains and nature are not important in this movie, even thou they intended to be. They are just padding the story.
