I enjoyed it enormously, was like food to me when a teenager
BALSAMO is a series about some thrilling 18th century French adventures; Marais plays Joseph Balsamo. In a word, it is perfectly, entirely enjoyable TV. BALSAMO also gave a taste of how might have been to love all those unusually awesome vampsthose classy, stylish ladies.
I have seen this TV series when I was 13 and I remember enjoying it enormouslythe excitement, the adventure, the eeriness of the depicted age, the handsome Marais, the beautiful women . I am such a great fan of Marais and perhaps I should have spoken a lot more already about his moviesthose worth watchinglike BALSAMO and a melodrama with Danielle Darrieux and an action thriller like TRAIN D'ENFER--but I will make it up in the future.
