The purpose of the paper entitled Warning! Or the case of Ondrej Muranica is to analyse the poetics and aesthetics of the first largely Slovak feature film produced shortly after the World War II., in 1946. It focuses on the characteristics of formal means of expression with overreaches in the contents and national principles, which are brought to prominence in this first Slovak feature film. Emphasis is placed on the analysis of the stage, acting, and direction characteristics which are attributed to the actor and film director Palo Bielik, founder of the Slovak feature film production. The feature film Warning is fundamental pillars among the of Slovak cinematography, which is markedly reflected in the construing of schemes and stereotypes typical of Bielik's feature film production and which are to be found in the production of other Slovak film directors that directly followed.
