More than a masterpiece!
22 October 2011 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

Great story about a man called Matan who is a very intelligent cheater. The story basically follows him and in a way his family as well, from when he was just a child until he reaches the old age. That is the most simple way to describe. In reality it's much more complicated and with a lot more to it.

The show is brilliant in both drama and comedy, like many Yugoslavian TV series were. It's quite often sad and tragic, but it never loses that comedic touch. This is truly one of the funniest television series ever. Not just in former Yugoslavia, but all around the world. I've never seen anything as funny as this. There were some television series that i was maybe more fond of, but i've never seen something quite as funny as this.

Rade Serbedzija, an amazing actor who has his share of fame and respect in the world as well, is playing the title role, Matan. Matan is, as i already said, a cheater. A cheater in every way you can be a cheater. But what's more fascinating than anything about this series is it's characters. Not what they do, but who they are and how they think. How primitive they are, but still so likable. Vrdoljak did all he could with Prosjaci i Sinovi, and it is truly the crown of his career.

I don't know if there is a subtitled version of the series out there, but if there isn't, there sure should be. To those of you who don't understand Croatian, or Serbian, find it and watch it. You will not regret it! Simply amazing! I guess incredible would be the best word!
