During WWII a group of Jewish children is sent to a castle outside Paris to hide there until things cool down, but it eventually becomes their new home. Later, children from the liberated concentration camps arrive there as well.
Along with Octopus (La Piovre) Derrick, Inspector Montalbano, Unit One, The Eagle and to a lesser extent Komissar Rex, this is one of the most unique European Crime series ever made.
Australia is spoiled because we get the best crime shows from the UK, USA, Canada and Europe on free-to-air. And I love being able to enjoy all the styles and story telling. It is fun being able to watch shows like Homicide Life on the Street, Wire in the Blood etc and then be able to see shows like this one.
I just wish I could get it subtitled on DVD rather than having to wait for it to be rerun on SBS our foreign TV channel.
Well worth a look if you see it in order.
