Romance and drama from the top!
20 August 2005 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

This is supposed to be the most expensive mini-TV series the German TV station ZDF ever made. They used 400 horses and more then a thousand actors. The series just finished it's running on a Belgian TV station as a 4 part mini-series. It carried the title "Tussen Passie en Plicht" (Between Passion and Duty) and it's about a forbidden love between a soldier and a Prussian princess. I especially watched it because of the beautiful and the much talented Alexandra Maria Lara, who played Princess Anna Amalia (aka Amélie). The role of her being an 18th century Princess fits her well. She is not acting, she is just Amélie! But this is not the only reason why you should watch it. There are the idyllic landscapes, the stunning music, the high detailed clothes, the fine and beautiful colors, the brilliant acting and many more. And the opening tune is just breathtaking. Plus, there are a lot of teardrop moments. If you like Alexandra Maria Lara, romance or historic costume drama from the top, you will get it here.

Tip: watch this series with your(girl)friend on a cold winter evening. Sit back in the couch and let take your breath away and bring you closer to each other!

Definitely worth a 10 on 10!
