Kekec's Tricks (Slovene: Kekčeve ukane) is a 1968 Yugoslav/Slovenian adventure film directed by Jože Gale. Film was based on the Kekec mountain narratives by Josip Vandot, published in Slovenian youth magazine Zvonček. Film was produced at Viba film and distributed originally at Vesna film and currently at Viba film.

This is last of three in the Jože Gale film series about Kekec and has two previous parts: Kekec from 1951 and Good Luck, Kekec (Srečno, Kekec!) from 1963.

Plot summary[edit]

In the third and the last part of the film trilogy about Kekec (Zlatko Krasnič), evil wild poacher Bedanec (Polde Bibič) appears again. Kekec and his friends are there to chase and hunt Bedanec again and sent him far away. Bedanec catches Brincelj (Milorad Radovič) and Rožle (Boris Ivanovski). Very brave Kekec saves both of them with the help of his wisdom and tricks Bedanec, who catches in his own trap that he set.

Kekec saves Bedanec out of the trap because he asks him nicely, however he doesn't learn anything out of this. Will maybe wise man Vitranc (Jože Zupan) bring peace in these places...
