Brilliant script and Tanasije Uzunovic at his best
20 December 2011 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best series that has appeared in Serbia during the past two decades. However, it has been so underestimated, misunderstood and surrounded by false perceptions of new generations alienated from their own origins. First of all, this script has nothing in common with another Serbian series dealing with living in a country that was being broadcast at the same time. The amount of money that was invested in "My cousin from the country" cannot compare with the latter series.Secondly, the image of a villager is quite different. They are not pictured as confused and unadapted persons, but clever and wise people, full of spirit, who fight to survive in harsh times. The dialogs are so deep and meaningful that i enjoyed in every word of that brilliant script. It is not an archaic story, it is story of ourselves how we used to be, a story of dying breed of people that founded this country and built it up. I was simply blown away by the marvelous performance of Tanasije Uzunovic.He plays his role as he was born in that village and live there for all of his life. Full of wisdom that only life experience can provide, he is a true head of the family, sometimes ironic in his wisdom, but with so much love and care for all his family and their happiness. Nebojsa Glogovac in the role of a local priest was also at his best. One of the deepest and the most emotional scenes in the series is the part when he fulfills the last wish of an old lady to sing her the song on youth at her dying bed. I want to believe that one day people would understand the messages from this series better.
