1960s Forever
16 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

Once, somebody would write the history of Yugoslav every-day-life in 1960s. He would use this serial like a source. It is hard to explain on this English spoken site what did this serial meant for my generation (born 1960-1963). When show was running on TV we were in the same age like characters from serial. It was cult. We knew dialogs by heart. Serial promoted extremely humorous Belgrade slang. I think it is comparable only to Paris and New York slang by its humor and vivid cynicism. The point is that serial was accepted in western parts of former Yugoslavia in spite of animosity towards Belgrade as capital because it dealt with universal teen-age problems.
