Summary

This co-production epic film is the sixth film version of the legendary Slovak outlaw Juraj Jánošík (1688 – 1713). Following the defeat of Francis Rákóczi II Juraj Jánošík is captured as one of the insurgents and enlisted into the emperor’s service. His father buys his freedom, but Juraj allows his friend Tomáš Uhorčík to persuade him to become the rebel leader instead of him. Two years later both men are betrayed, captured, sentenced and in 1713 executed. Previous version.: Jánošík (dir. Jaroslav Siakeľ, 1921 – the first Slovak feature film), Jánošík (dir. Martin Frič, 1935), Jánošík I, II (dir. Paľo Bielik, 1962 – 1963), Janosik (dir. Jerzy Passendorfer, 1973 – Polish TV series, later introduced into cinema distribution) a Zbojník Jurko (dir. Viktor Kubal, 1976, animovaný film/animated film).
