Michel van Dousselaere,
Great plot, Great Actors, what more could you want?
I'm currently watching this series of SBS TV in Australia. We're currently in between episodes 7 & 8.
I really cannot speak highly enough of this series. I'd give a run through of the general plot but that has already been well and truly canvassed by previous posters.
This series is streets ahead of US and most Australian dramas in the same vein. When I watch a US drama like this I find it they often come across as fake and over the top. Matroesjka's, or Russian Dolls as it is translated into English manages to maintain a high level of excitement and keep the viewers interest whilst keeping entirely realistic and believable, offering an honest portrayal of the plight of Eastern European sex slaves.
I really hope that this series is put to DVD, with English subtitles. In Australia we are lucky to have a brilliant team of subtitlers at SBS TV, it'd be nice if SBS acquired the rights to produce a DVD, wishful thinking no doubt.
If this is the standard of Belgian TV, then I'd better book myself a plane ticket.
