Even though there are many things different from the book, the film still got the point across of the hardship, pain and suffering of the French people at all levels. The limited nature of film means it will never be exactly the same, but there were scenes in the film that were similar if not in sequence, it did not loose too much of the story. The character of Lea wasn't as strong as in the books but I didn't feel it was a real detriment. I love the books and to a degree I can say usually the books are better but would watch this series again anytime. I think the only thing disappointing was the ending was very different from the book and although a little disappointed it was still within the character of the books.
