An unorthodox picture of Socialist Yugoslavia
This TV Series is written but a prominent writer of dramas Aleksandar Popovic. Three main characters, a thief, a peasant who wants to become successful, and a clerk, after serving military service, go to the capital. There, they meet two sisters, a factory worker and a prostitute. Together, they will try to achieve Yugoslav version of American dream. Will they be successful? The script is sometimes too pathetic, but the acting is great. Among the actors, probably the best is Slobodan Aligrudic. In each episode, main characters sing one of songs, written also by Popovic. An interesting fact about the series: after it premier, the first rerun occurred 34 years later. Surprisingly,and fortunately, the series (although obviously not exactly according to the "general line) was not "erased" as numerous other masterpieces from the period.
