This was shown on American cable about 25 years ago.
My wife and I watched this episode after episode, enthralled the whole time. That is to say we really enjoyed it. The mini-series was shown on a cable program that contained highlights of French culture, pop culture in this case. This was the only thing that ever caught out attention on the program. I have no recollection of what cable channel it was on, but I do remember that we waited expectantly for it to come on. Since the series was in French, we had to get the dialogue from sub-titles, which neither my wife nor I care for, but we suffered through them for this series. If anyone gets a chance to see this, I would recommend that you take it. It isn't Citizen Kane, but it is interesting and can provide several hours of entertainment.
