This is a mediocre TV series based on an excellent novel written in 1888 by the Croatian 19th-century writer Ante Kovacic. Whereas the novel is abundant with character portrayals, suspension, and landscapes descriptions, the TV series offers a row of boring sequences with poor acting, bad settings, and leaves nothing to hope for in terms discovering the psychological portraits of characters. In Kovacic' book, Laura is a mad, evil, but in the same time a beautiful lady, and her character has a certain development through the novel. None of these features can be vaguely recognized in the Ljubica Jovic' act. The setting is absolutely horrible, all the scenes seem to have been situated in a poorly equipped studio, and you can barely tell if the scene takes place in a peasant's house, a city house or a local tavern. The excruciatingly boring is the wedding scene, where the folk singing and dancing lasts too long, diminishing the very few moments of urbanity throughout the series.
