Grotesque
15 October 2003 | by adamkovicSee all my reviews

I think this movie was originally meant as a parody of Slovak national legend of Jánosík, the king of thieves, some kind of Central European Robin Hood, who lived in 1688-1713 (executed to death). The legend makes Jánosík a Superman. Pacho has a pure luck and a little more knowledge of the world and combat than his fellow thieves (for he served in an Austrian imperial army) - thus he easily becomes a leader. Jozef Króner who plays Pacho is one of the best ever Slovak actors, best known for his starring in Oscar winning "Obchod na korze". Thieves are not like the legendary "100% positive" heroes - they have their needs and a lot of negative characteristics and are, modestly said, a little bit dumb. The aristocracy, endangered by Pacho's successes, gets afraid and calls in an army. But the female part of the aristocracy finds the thieves extraordinaly SEXY... The empress Mary Therese rules such a big Empire, that she and her servants aren't even able to find "Hybe" region on the map that covers the whole floor of her audition hall... Pacho's favorite drink, frndzalica, a cracked liqueur with nitroglycerine-like effects seems to be his greatest power for fighting the disoriented army - and also crucial to his wins. Just like original Jánosík, he finds himself betrayed by the ex-chief and when frndzalica used up, he is sentenced to being buried up to his head - Jánosík was betrayed and hanged by a rib... In the last scene a small boy, who could be Pacho's son, tells Pacho's head on the ground he is Pacho the thief-chief... again, the criminal becomes a legend.
