Unforgettable story of Serbian people resurrection
An epic series that has unfortunately been forgotten even in the country where it was created.Through the eyes of Vuk Karadzic, the reformer of Serbian language, the authors gave us a story of rebirth of Serbian nation from the bonds of slavery under Turkish rule. Serbs where the first people in Balkans who raised the uprising against the Ottomans and their struggle was not only in the field of war, but in the area of literacy and science as well. Fight for the language was taking place same as the fight for freedom.
The best actors that this country has ever had revive the brutal world of suffering, intrigues and acts of heroism. Miki Manojlovic, as Vuk Karadzic, and Aleksandar Bercek in the role of ruthless, but clever Serbian prince Milos Obrenovic have set hardly reachable standards of acting with their astonishing performances. Marko Nikolic,Danilo Lazovic, Velimir Zivojinovic,Gorica Popovic, Rade Markovic, it simply impossible to enumerate all great actors who gave outstanding contributions to this series. It is specially interesting the performance of Marko Nikolic as a Karadjordje because of his great resemblance with the mentioned Serbian war lord.Beautiful and suggestive music of Vojislav Kostic gave so much to this series.
