Incredible
5 August 2008 | by franjo_frlicSee all my reviews

One of the best, if not the best, Croatian drama series. A story about the hard times and the people of rural Croatia who had to face them. Everything in the show was close to perfection, the language, the locations, the mentality of the people. So authentic that this series is a national treasure for all of Croatia, and especially Podravina and the rest of northwestern Croatia. A touching story of a poor, naive man who s always trying to do the best thing but just has no luck. A masterwork for all ages. Worth seeing again and again. Great editing, camera, script, makes this one not only a culturally significant work but a true masterpiece of film art.
