Great series about a great man
15 March 2005 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best series ever made in Yugoslavia and stars almost all the best actors that the country ever had. The series recounts the life and times of Vuk Karadzic, the man who created the Serbo-Croatian grammar and spelling, and sampled countless folk tales and issued them. It's a story of one great man who lived in a dangerous and very exciting time. The series also show Serbia's violent history and the people who fought to rule it, like the ruthlessly ambitious Milos Obrenovic and his more popular contemporary Karadjordje (Black George), whom Obrenovic later had murdered.

The story also involves Karadzic's meetings with such great persons as Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Johann Strauss, France Presern and Jernej Kopitar (famous Slovenian writers). The acting is superb and the unknown actor playing Vuk as a young man really puts a lot of weight in his performance, specially considering he was virtually unknown before this. Aleksandar Bercek is also superb as the cunning Obrenovic and Miki Manojlovic tops them all as the old Vuk.

This is at times a quite brutal show, but always fascinating to watch, specially for those who are interested in Karadzic's life and work and Serbia's and Balkan's history in the late 18th to mid 19th century. There is a lot to see and enjoy in. I recommend this very warmly for anyone who likes historical epic dramas.10/10
