29 March 2012 | by GlifadaSee all my reviews

It's really nice that the viewers in Serbia had a chance to see this brilliant TV series (Pink, March, 2012), though I doubt that many endured to watch it all the way. Unlike many similar TV products (especially Spanish, Turkish, Brazilian and Indian), this series did not offer us a fairy tale on luxury and 'la dolce vita', but the touching story about a serious illness, human isolation, suffering and fear ... with a lot of emotional charge.

A small rocky island, so near yet so far away from the rest of the world, has become the personification of horror and despair of the despised and rejected. But even in this terrible and gloomy setting there is enough room for human hope, enthusiasm, friendship, and love. Although it does not seem so at first glance, the series actually emits optimism because it shows that people in difficult personal situations can accept their ill fate in a dignified way.

The atmosphere was brilliantly depicted as well as the characters, especially the main ones. Needless to say: the actors are fascinating, including children and 'naturščiks' (non-professional actors). Despite some possible small flaws (in the script, directing, or editing?) in two or three episodes (WWII), the series is, in general, excellent!

Finally, I would like to point out something that is important for viewers in Serbia: translation was perfect. The translator (unsigned?) respected what the actors uttered in Greek, skillfully adapting certain colloquial expressions to Serbian ones.

All in all, 'To Nisi' is a job well done!
