Finally I've got it!
16 January 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

War and Peace is one of those detailed and never ending novels I have always postponed to read (and I really was, especially as a young girl, an extreme Reader! To be frank I started it and never went further the 30th page!). Thanks to this mini TV series, I have finally got the story, although the adaptation (according to those who have read the book) is not as detailed and sticking to the original. BUT---THANKS GOD it is not ;-) In fact, this very well built TV adaptation has a very, very good rhythm and you never get bored. Many thanks to the screen writers and to the director (I clap my hands). Very good photography, and very authentic characters (I hardly cry by watching movies and here I did ;-). 4 Russian good/aristocratic Families and their ups and downs through war and peace ages. The second episode is the spring of the series as there, taking advantage of peace, a lot of romances are consumed. Love is in the air! Although someone has criticized this TV version, I really appreciate the international casting and production. The mix is very good and well organized, the costumes and sceneries are nice and cared to detail. There are all the ingredients for a great movie work, because it goes under your skin, and you are still permeated with the atmosphere and the characters (all very fascinating) far beyond the "END". So, what do you expect more?
