„I´ve never dreamed about Grand Prize for the smallest alpine mountain in the world. I regarded the movie as local story. However, I´m glad that people in New Zealand got to know unique Tatra Mountains from this film. The same way we got to know amazing nature of New Zealand from the film The Lord of the Rings," - Pavol Barabáš.Print pagepublished 02. 07. 2014, viewed 3242x, today 2x
