      After seven years in production, Agnieszka Holland’s The True Story of Janosik and Uhocik nears its release date.



      Agnieszka Holland, known for movies such as Europe, Europe, The Secret Garden
      and Washington Square was assisted in the production by her daughter, Kasia Adamik.

      The film tells the story of Juraj Janosik, a legendary Carpathian folk hero in the Robin Hood mould, who lived in what is now northern Slovakia at the turn of the XVII and XVIII century. Janosik, a Slovakian highlander, became a legend as the one “who took from the rich and gave to the poor.”

      In the film he is played by young Czech actor Vaclav Jiracek, while closest members of his merry band are performed by Poland’s Michal Zebrowski and Ivan Martinka from Slovakia. Janosik’s sweatheart is played by American actress Sarah Zoe Canner, who learnt the entire role in the Slovakian language.

      “It is going to be the first time when film goers will have a chance to see the real Janosik, not the poetic, mythic legend,” said Jan Kakascnik from the film’s distribution company.

      The script, written by Eva Borusovicova, is based on years of research focused on the documents and archives of Janosik’s trial.



      “Our film is beyond convention: it leaves behind the legend and has a certain touch of the truth. Janosik is a very modern hero. He is an outsider, similar to those young boys coming back from the battlefields of Vietnam and Iraq,” Agnieszka Holland says.

      The film, a Polish-Slovak-Czech-Hungarian co-production, is to be screened in Polish cinemas in September this year. According to the distribution company, only a small amount of post-production still has to be done.

      The production started in 2002 and during first the four months about 40 percent of the movie was completed. Unfortunately, the work had to be stopped as one of the production partners withdrew from the project. After six years the crew regrouped and finished the shooting in June last year. (jg/pg)
