Storyline

Ten years after he was, as a young soldier billeted in Paris at the end of World War Two, Robert Simpson returns to the house where he stayed, owned by Resistance hero Hector Vareille. Hector was a bully to his put-upon wife Nathalie, who had to do everything as he always sat in the same chair and never left the house. Robert is writing a book about the Resistance but Hector is now dead and Nathalie tells the former soldier how she turned the tables on her overbearing husband. Written by don @ minifie-1

Stales of the Unexpected.

Young American Bobby Simpson pays a call on Madame Vareille, he returns ten years after he was billeted during World War Two, he's there to right a book about the Resistance. She explains her husband Hector had died two years ago, a bully of a man, overbearing and domineering, he had given his wife a dog's life, timing her on every chore and activity. Hector refuses to leave the house after a group of men had taken him away one night.

Admittedly it's a hard episode to love, it has the feel of an amateur dramatics production about it, the production values are rather poor, it looks massively like a set, Old Paris looks like a low budget production.

It is horribly filmed, it has such a cheap looking appearance, it's far from slick. The fades from black and white to colour look very amateur. I'd have to agree with the other review and say that the acting is pretty poor, it feels quite disjointed and clunky.

It feels like the series is becoming a little stale, not a lot of care had gone into this. Hard work watching this, 4/10
