One of the best mini-series I have ever seen, and certainly my personal favorite. It may be a little small paced and boring in the beginning, but then it just starts to delight, in an incredible sense of reality that stays with us until the final scene. Brian Cox is very well cast as the colonel Grushko and the direction is also great. Unfortunately, this is one of those small masterpieces who just disappear without warning. I wish I have the possibility to watch it again. I give it a perfect **** out of ****.
