I remember it fondly - but will I ever see it again?
9 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well, I also saw it when it first came out (more than once actually, may have also seen it on RTE or a repeat) - and I have to disagree with one of the previous comments - it isn't in French with English subtitles! The 6 part miniseries covers the events of 1798 when a French army was sent by the revolutionary government to support the Irish rebellion there at the time from a number of perspectives - the French army's being only one (and the only one in French).

I remember it as not being the best series I've ever seen - by a long shot - but I still enjoyed it, and it's a fascinating period in Irish history that could do with a revisit from the cinema. I wonder if it'll ever get re-released or shown again?
