Trivia

Jatagan Mala, one of the main settings of the show, was an actual area of Belgrade that existed between the World Wars. Its name means "Sword Neighborhood" in Turkish. It consisted of illegally built small houses and most of its inhabitants were very poor. It was completely demolished in the 1960s to make space for a highway, colleges and other new buildings.

Very Interesting New Serbian Show
25 December 2017 | by aleblok70See all my reviews

I must say that I am positively surprised by this show as it is something very new to this region. Unlike Pavic's or Sotra's predictable, unrealistic and boring series "Senke nad Balkanom" is a very good show. Storyline is interesting and pushes you into further thinking about what's really going on and what is going to happen next. I was also happy to see very good special effects. There were some nudity, and other explicit scenes, so this show reminds of the Game of Thrones series in a way, of course it's not recommended for children even though it has been broadcast in the prime time of the national television. I would only complain on not-so-witty jokes and poor acting by some of the cast. Overall, I give this show 8/10.
