This needs to be put on DVD!!!
16 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is an excellent movie (Tv Series). PLEASE get this on DVD!!! The acting is great. The producers outdid themselves. Gabriel Bryne is good in anything he does, and this is no exception. Max vonSydow likewise. I hope 'the powers that be' put this excellent series on DVD very very soon.
