Storyline

The British family from "Fresh Fields" (1984) moves to France. Episodes center around their adjustment to and difficulties dealing with French culture. Much humor is also derived from their maid, an elderly woman who speaks an obscure, old dialect of French that no one understands. Written by Mike Borzumate <borzum@rpi.edu>

La Vie De France!
14 November 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this comedy series better in France than in England. Maybe they can bring their show to America! If only BBC made more episodes per season like the United States, I would gladly campaign for that idea. The British make better comedies than we Americans do. First, I didn't see their previous series, Fresh Fields, with cast members Ann Beach as neighbor Sonia, Hester's mom played by Fanny Rowe, and Hester's dad played by Ballard Berkeley. Anyway, this show is better in the French version as the Fields get used to life in France. The Fields are played by veterans Julia McKenzie and Anton Rodgers (another two possible British honorees). Julia's Hester is quite lovable but I wish she would sing because she has a phenomenal singing voice that she is also known for her work in West End musicals. Anton is better known for his other series, May to December.
