The reason I'm rating this French mini-series as high as I do is because of the title. I spent six weeks in France chasing after dolmens, cromlechs, and grandes menhirs brissés (and non-brisés).
The dolmen in the title is the remains of a prehistoric burial chamber that looks like a small stone house or large table. This one comes complete with a six foot tall stone semi-circle with a single symbol on each stone, a passageway to the sea caves below, and a passageway to the castle on the island. With as many corpses as a Norwegian Thriller, I was surprised at first to find each episode was 90 minutes, but it takes six episodes to dispatch so many characters in French.
Dolmen is romantic in both a dreamy way and like a soap-opera; furthermore it has the conventions of a romantic comedy (with lots of extra killing).
