Very well put together & funny reminisces of Gerald Durrels adventures in Corfu with his family before the war. I remember seeing the BBC series about 15 years ago which also was very good, & was surprised to see it made again, but this was another superb production, so is a welcome addition. The acting is superb throughout, particularly his weird family members. Imelda Staunton is as good as aways, & was the boy playing Gerald Durrell. The actress who took the part of his sultry sister was also good & very attractive. Expect to see more of her. The setting also added to the experience, with all the sun & sand, making you wish you were there, instead of a cold winters day in England.
Overall, certainly one to watch if you haven't already.
