What they said about Julo

Milan Lasica, Satinský's acting partner and friend:
"Even though I sensed certain things, I was shocked by the announcement [of Satinský's death]. My friend and partner has departed and a part of me has disappeared with him. I am now incomplete. Julo was a renaissance personality, a person with great knowledge and an incomparable sense of humour. He made me laugh, time and time again for over 40 years - even last Monday, when we were together for the last time."

Andrej Ďurkovský, mayor of Bratislava:

"It is very difficult for all of us to say goodbye to a great native, who had a unique and incomparable way of expressing his relationship to Bratislava, its values, joys and problems. He will remain for us an unforgettable local patriot and a Bratislava resident with all his heart."




Mikuláš Dzurinda, prime minister:

"I knew Julo personally and I know that his departure will leave an empty space in my heart. I will never stop admiring his everlasting energy and life optimism which he gave away so generously."




Martin Porubjak, dramaturge of the Slovak National Theatre and a director:

"We all toast to Julo's eternal fame. Within our generation he has it guaranteed. He was a clown from the ranks of Jan Werich [famous Czech comedian and writer]. Before the last elections he was my candidate for president. It is our bad luck, but fortunate for him, that it hasn't happened."




Ladislav Chudík, actor:

"It is a great loss, because for the public he was not only an actor and a comedian, but also a publicist and a writer - he significantly influenced our society with his opinions. The loss is irreplaceable. There are people who leave and can be replaced, but there also those who are simply irreplaceable."
