best croatian production ever
25 September 2001 | by KicivsSee all my reviews

Gruntovcani is sure the best tv-series ever made in Croatia. It describes the life of Dudek and Regica in a small village at the end of nowhere. Dudek is not quite intelligent, so he faces a lot of troubles in which he gets into with help of his "friendly neghboors who want the best for him and his wife". Many humouristic scenes and dialogues, a revolution in a communistic production in Croatia in the 70ies. Although it is hardly to be understood for people from other, more developed countries, it will be always my recommendation for all who understand Croatian and like good entertainment.
