Storyline

In the 1920s, decades after the troubled and unhappy marriage between Soames Forsyte and the beautiful pianist Irene Heron came to an end, Soames and Irene have both remarried and moved on. Irene is happily married with a son to Jolyon Forsyte - causing Jolyon to be even further considered as an outcast and traitor by the Forsytes - and Soames to the beautiful, yet very unfaithful, Frenchwoman Annette. With Annette, Soames also finally has the child he so desperately wanted, and, at the age of 18, his daughter Fleur knows exactly how to get whatever she wants from doting and indulgent father. The pain of the past is however once again about to resurface as Fleur, despite Soames's efforts, meets and falls deeply in love with Irene and Jolyon's 18-year-old son Jon. As the young lovers embark on their passionate love affair, they have no idea of the obsession, unhappiness, adultery, rape, and possessive, unrequited love that lie in their parents' past.

Only for fans of the first series...
1 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was sadly, sadly disappointed by this series. I wasn't a fan of the original series myself, but I did recognize the good elements in it and appreciated what I could...but I fear there are even fewer things to play off of here. I realize that many people love and adore both series, but here's another perspective (which is bound to happen when so many different people are viewing it). Overall, I was greatly annoyed by the main characters. They were childish and obnoxious...if they weren't crying they were throwing a fit...and that just grates on the nerves after a few hours. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Damien Lewis again...he nailed the role at being vile. He's one character you love to hate. I was so disappointed, however, at the turn Jolyon's character took. He was one of two reasons that I even made it through the entire first series, so you can imagine my difficulty at his new attitude (which is understandable with two obnoxious main characters running around wreaking havoc). ;) I was really pleased with the outcome of the movie, however, and couldn't have thought of a better way to end the madness myself! :P So, there is one opinion that's opposite of what others have to say. I will say that if you enjoyed the first one, you will probably enjoy this one. Give it a shot, and if at all possible...it's always more enjoyable to like something. I wish I could have the opinions of the others here, but there you have it! :)
