Excellent show!
28 August 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This show is amazing, everything is great, the acting, the directing and the script... Probably the best Croatian TV-show ever! Goran and Antun Vrdoljak did a great job, and all of the actors were marvelous! The ending was very well done, although it was a little bit sad, and all 13 episodes were absolutely amazing. I was kinda disappointed with the cameras because they looked a little cheap, but besides that I cannot believe how good this series was. I'm definitely a Goran fan now! And Antun Vrdoljak, you rule! In my opinion you're the best Croatian director and one of the best directors ever! You did a pretty good job, bravo! Anyway,do not miss the best Croatian series ever! See it!
