Just saw two episodes. Such a refreshing view, despite the grim subject, to see actors playing the story and not their narcissism. Perhaps it's the script but I don't know. These actors are great. The absence of big bucks is funny sometimes, battle scene in minefield, but then artistic. I haven't watched Band of Brothers end to end. Hear it is very good. But to see real passion and not sentimentality, argument and not posing, the glimpses of the women are amazing, the clarity of the narrative, the steady invention with the camera without being arty, and the absence of gratuitous gore. All left to the actors and story. Anyway, just a joy.
