The Winds of War

Great story well told

(Edit) Updated 05/02/2021

Having read the books by Herman Wouk I was intrigued to see that there was a 'mini series'. The DVD come with I assume episodes run together and is spread over several DVDs. (only seen 3 so far) As the author of the book wrote the screen play the dialogue is often word for word the same and no story quirks that I noticed, which is good because its a great story. I found Robert Mitchum a bit incongrous as the lead as he is a bit old for the part, but this is from the era when it was deemed ok to have much older (male) romantic leads. That aside it was well cast and very enjoyable, giving a really good flavour for the parts of the world covered, USA, Italy, Warsaw, Berlin and the UK. The bomber flight over Berlin was very well done.

The Forsyte Saga: Series 2

brilliant portrait of the characters and the story

(Edit) 10/09/2020

I mssed this when it was on TV the first time, but really enjoyed catching up with it. The acting was superb, especially Daniel Lewis as Soames in his older years. Costumes and sets lovely and convincing and a gripping story. Every episode had me hooked.

Versailles

Really enjoyed all 3 series. Well drawn characters, well acted, plenty of humour.

(Edit) 04/08/2020

Compelling story line, about an era that I didnt know much about. The actors made the characters real and the script showed their dilemmas. And of course the sets and costumes were amazing. Always entertaining.
