Simply the best
25 December 2008 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This is my favorite TV series. I never saw anything that beautiful on TV. It's a diamond itself. I just feel I have to express my incomprehension here on IMDb. I cannot understand that it is so hard to find on the internet. Why did it disappear from TV? I'd pay a lot of money just to watch it one more time. The scenery is absolutely stunning. The storyline is immersive. The acting is great as far as I can remember. I was only 12 when I saw it for the last time, but it hasn't left my mind ever since. This series is to me like an old lover you cannot forget. If you like romantic movies, you shouldn't miss this one. Can someone please dig it out.
