I recommend this mini series.
15 June 2001 | by (Corinth Vt) – See all my reviews

I remember this series, even after all these years, as being an excellent version of the life of George Sand. I remember one line Rosemary Harris said about Chopin's music being like pearls dropping. Very finely done. I wish it were out on video.
