Bochdansky & Humer (A)
The Puss in Boots or a few tricks you just have to know!
Duration: 50 minutes
Two breezy figures called "Tips" and "Tricks" pilgrimage through the country. They are itinerant preachers of a cunning lifestyle, so to speak. No one knows where and when they will appear. They are just - there. Their role model and consultant is the Puss in Boots. He is always one step ahead, for he has learned very early how to save one's skin. Since someone has tried to make a pair of gloves out of him, he took matters into his own hands. Smart like a fox, he quickly achieves to bring his friend and companion, the miller's son, to the highest circles. Where's the honesty in that?
The fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm does not answer that question but we assume, the motto is: Being smart is good, but be honest to yourself and everybody else.
