Dragomir 'Gidra' Bojanic,
The plot follows the story of Zona Zamfirova (Katarina Radivojevic), a local rich man's daughter, and the vicissitudes of her affair with Mane (Vojin Cetkovic), an ordinary goldsmith. As it was undesirable for the daughter of a rich man to marry a craftsman, the two are at first divided, with the possibility of Zona marrying the son of other rich people, Manulac. Everything is, however, changed as Mane organizes a successful conspiracy to keep Zona for himself. Written by
The movie it self is as a matter of fact done fairly poorly when it comes to details (bad pronunciation of southern accent by numerous actors, bad acting by some actors, too much synthesized music). The scenery, thou it looks fairly realistic, could have been done much better knowing that the original buildings and streets from that time are still there. However, overall, the story and movie are very good. Music is traditional or well composed to sound similar, acting is in general good, the story telling never goes dull or boring (as a matter of fact it keeps you quite focused), the southern accent gets very amusing.
Maybe not the best movie of all the times but a definitive miss if not seen and a definitive multiple viewing if seen once.
