Storyline

Set in 1935 when the Englishwoman Louisa Durrell, whose life had fallen apart, decided to move from Bournemouth to the Greek island of Corfu. Her husband had died some years earlier and she has financial problems, when she suddenly announces that she and her four children will move to the island and a Homeric battle ensues as the family adapt to life on the island, especially when they discover that Corfu does not even have electricity at that time. But it is cheap, an earthly paradise and the Durrell family make the big step that will change their lives. Written by Vidas

Very Ordinary
21 October 2016 | by (adelaide australia) – See all my reviews

I have read the Durrel books and was expecting something out of the ordinary . I was bitterly disappointed . The acting was a struggle mainly because the film was poorly produced and directed . The script was dull unlike the lively dialogue in the books . Gerry , the animal lover , was fluent in Greek as a child but you would never have guessed this from watching this series . I was also expecting to see some spectacular scenery again I was disappointed . Perhaps the books were not really suitable for adaptation for a screen series . I can accept that there is some poetic licence when attempting to turn a series of books into a TV series but I think in this case it went to far . I bought the series and regret doing so .
