An enjoyable television series, more or less remotely inspired from G. K. Chesterton's character(s)
26 January 2013 | by (Brussels) – See all my reviews

An enjoyable television series, more or less remotely inspired from G. K. Chesterton's character(s). To be relished as such, independent of any other literary or cinematographic influences. But also as a pretext to go back to the earlier versions, from the '50s and '70s, respectively. The first movie is in black-and-white, with a vintage 1950s atmosphere, while the 1970s series is the more faithful to the original, in spite of its rather more low-budget air. The new version is quite flamboyant, and yet it might ruffle quite a few feathers of the viewers who are expecting to get more of the original Chesterton stories. A successful entertainment for the more modern-minded nostalgic(s)...
