Storyline

A half century of history in the Balkans is dramatized in this 4 part miniseries of 360 minutes total duration. Episode 1 takes us from the 1890s to 1914. In 1892, the Ottoman Empire is being threatened by patriotic nationalists. In Goricka, the lord of the region celebrates the birth of his heir, Zufikar, receiving the name of the prestigious family's founder. The boy is brought up regally, and graduates from the University of Salonika (at the time Turkish). There he befriends a young Greeek, Takis. Zufikar then returns home, where he again meets Esma, the mill owner's daughter, a childhood acquaintance. Passion erupts between "Z" and Esma. Disagreeing over Esma's sense of virtue, "Z" leaves her without knowing she is carrying his child. Alone and abandoned, Esma marries the coach driver Mustafa, to avoid the disgrace of being a single mother. "Z", in an attempt to forget Esma marries Myriam, a Jewish refugee from Salonika In Episode 2, World War II erupts in the Balkans, then ... Written by Gonz30

great movie
18 July 2007 | by (Washigton, DC) – See all my reviews

This series was good. It showed the complexity of the Balkan region. Also showed how bad communism was. Hoxha was a brute. The casting was good too. I also liked how the world changed during the decades. A shame that not many people commented on this TV movie.

A sequel to this movie can be played in our heads. Communism is the loser for sure. Nationalism will win. I would assume that the baby will be brought up by the Greek chap who would become a rich magnate. He would adopt his values which is better than that of his birth mother's (communism) and birth father's (nationalism). The Greek man's ideology is every man for himself.
