Great TV-Series that exceeded all of my Expectations but Still have its own Flaws
15 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

Cloudstreet was surprisingly a brilliant TV-Series and adaptation of the novel by Tim Winton, spanned to 6 episodes. The director managed to explore the theme of magical realism that was in the novel, and the cinematography was amazing. You could feel the character of the house and the scenes from the book are identical to the scenes in the TV- series. One of the minor problems with this series is that was not very appropriate for little children, as there were some disturbing scenes but nevertheless the M rating was OK. I would of wished that they didn't rush the ending and incorporated more about the Nedlands Monster

  • would of been much more intense and a thriller. I felt empty having


the TV series missing this segment, and a tad bit rushed with everything happening so fast. Perhaps more episodes would do this TV- Series justice. I found the young actors/actresses; that is young Quick, young Fish and young Rose were all very competent in their respectable roles, whereas the adult actors/actresses of their role didn't do too good apart from adult Fish. They felt more like different characters to me and couldn't bring in the personality traits that the young actors could. My recommendation is that you definitely watch this interesting and thought-provocative TV Series if you had little expectations. Because trust me, this would really blow your expectations!
