The adventures of Surda, a man in his 30's who comes from small town to Belgrade to get rich. However, no job is good for him, so he tries his luck in Germany, but this venture proves to be the same thing, and he gets back to his native Yugoslavia. Written by
Best humor ever to come out of Serbian TV probably
"Vruc Vetar" represents probably the brightest point in Serbian TV production. Made in the late 70s, this series follows life and adventures of a provincial character Borivoje Surdilovic Surda who leaves his native town in the south and heads to Belgrade and beyond, finding his career and luck.
I consider it to be good for several reasons. Actors did show their maximum, the script was indeed humorous and the production was on the level during the entire time. Unlike most of Serbian comedy, "Vruc Vetar" has a healthy everyday humor which makes sense. It also presents a good insight in Belgrade and Yugoslavia in the late 70's, when the country was in most prosperous years. Music is also on the level of the task and it's probably one of the best works by Miomir Vukobratovic.
Surda, the main character, is basically a goodhearted yet lazy and a hypochondriac. After spending his parents savings on shady business, he moves to live with his uncle in Belgrade. He changes a variety of works, including taxi driver, male gigolo in Germany and a bureaucrat in a rotten construction company.
Vruc Vetar is also important for the fact it was one of the last good scripts written by Sinisa Pavic, before he lost his marbles.
