Compelling script. Atmospheric and tense drama. Excellent TV Series.
29 September 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There are many notable films and TV series about World War Two, but this French series based around a young woman in Paris, Lilli, from 1940 on, is up there with the best. If you do not understand French and worry about subtitles then there is enough visual effort in this series to make it worth your while, and you really do not notice yourself reading the lower part of the screen after a while.

There are no winners in war, a point echoed by the script which does nothing to romanticise its message. There are moments when it is almost unwatchable and yet you have to watch because the screen compels you to. The acting is remarkable by any standards, the period captured in as close to authenticity as you can be. It is like a good book which you just cannot put down.

Highly recommended.
