I've watched this movie back when I was a kid and plot was something this:
The story takes place in black Africa (or some fantasy environment that resembles it). It is about a boy (I believe) in a village, where all the men are abducted by an evil sorceress that turns them into black robot like thingies that do her bidding. As a result there are no men left at the village and they suffer a lot.
The young hero resolves the conflict by pulling a splinter out of the sorceresses back with his teeth, which makes her turn normal again. She reverts all the men to their normal state. The men return in a celebratory procession carrying the hero on their shoulders and chanting something along the line "We are the husbands, we are the sons, we are the uncles, we are the nephews, ..." and so on. I believe that the sorceress was pardoned by the village people (pun intended) and that's where the movie ends.
I watched the movie in German, if that's relevant.
