Incredible Story
14 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

The three part mini-series, "The Violent Earth", is a beautifully told story with wonderful acting and gorgeous scenery.

As the lives of three generations of a French/Austrailian family unfold, you are captivated by the power of the strong, independent women in the story and by all the adventures they experience. Horrors of massacred loved ones, conflicts with local natives, typhoons, marriages, revolutions, and deaths are all part of this terrific television film. You won't be disappointed with the stories presented, and the cinematography is something you'll never forget. If there is ever a chance to see this stupendous mini-series, definitely stay home and take the chance offered you.
