| OK but not more than that
Great screenplay effort and well made drama. Unfortunately the show is loaded with cliches and nationalist stereotypes. The portrayal of non-Serbs (westerners, other Yugoslavs) is blatantly stereotypical, nationalistic and unrealistic. Even the Serbs are portrayed as slaves to religious and nationalist stereotypes. The division on urban and rural is black (urban) and white (rural). Villagers are portrayed as utterly primitive which could be excused for humor but the author Rados Bajic has made it dramatic as well. The son "Radoslav" is a vehicle for various political criticism whether against "Europe" or against what is perceived modern Serbian politics. This seems rather strange when the character himself is a complete mess (two-timing father, unfinished student, unqualified immigrant - somehow he got visas and work in both Sweden and Canada, unknown source of income etc ...) which is drawn from some type of illusive Serbian medieval values and "traditions" which is rather typical of Serbian nationalism. I felt sorry for Serbs if their doctors, police inspectors, state administrators, and judges constantly smoke, get drunk, and fight in bars though perhaps that is really true. It is watchable but could have been better than a pretentious soap opera it has become.
