Black Sun - Serbia
Black Sun (Serbia, 2017) by Eurochannel
Cast: Dragan Bjelogrlić, Andrija Kuzmanović, Marija Bergam
When a priest gets murdered, mayhem begins in a town where high politics, local interests, money, crime battle for power. Set in the 1930s Balkans, this thriller reveals both the glories and filth of Europe during an era of transition. Eurochannel premieres Black Sun, an action-packed thriller about murder, decadence, lust, and their darkest motifs.
Black Sun follows two Belgrade police inspectors in their attempt to solve a series of sacrificial murders that shake the Belgrade public. Andra Tane, the oldest, is a 50-year-old criminal police inspector with years of experience and plenty of recklessness. Stanko, his new associate, is a young and naïve forensic expert who seems lost in a world of crime, lust and corruption.
When the priest of a Russian Orthodox Church is found stabbed to death, inspector Tane and his new young colleague are paired to close the case as soon as possible. As they find a blood-written note at the crime scene, an apparent case of burglary gone wrong turns to be the revenge of the local gang within the ongoing opium war against the "White Russian" mob.
This exciting new series delivers a historical fantasy thriller set in the turbulent period of the late 1920s in the Balkans, a place where high politics, local interests, capital and crime merge. Compared by the European press to worldwide TV hits like Taboo, Peaky Blinders and Broadwalk Empire, Black Sun portrays Belgrade as a city controlled by crime, lust and decadent sex.
Produced and filmed with the biggest TV budget in history in the region, Black Sun has become a fan favorite since its premiere in Central Europe. For the filming, as all great productions worldwide, a small town was specially built to depict to perfection a 1930s Belgrade.
Welcome to a place where there is no escape. Whether because of its decadent appeal or its dark secrets, you will not wish to ever get out!
