Pavliha 3+

Pavel Polák based on Slovene folk tales / 35 min

One of the most famous Slovene folk tales is certainly the story of Pavliha. He lives alone with his mother, who loves him endlessly, even though he gives her grey hair. Pavliha is special. He is extremely obedient, perhaps even too obedient, as he understands all instructions very literally. And because of this, he often gets in trouble.

A puppet show that, with the interweaving of two stories, illuminates characteristics of man, such as naivety, sincerity, and honesty.
