Liked and then i didn't The series started with boring scenes, but thank god the story began to progress quite surreptitiously. I was just waiting for the seconds when all the pieces were intertwined, and just when everything started to be good, I couldn't concentrate anymore. I have a couple episodes left, but I can't find the motivation to know how everything ends.

Votes: 4,383

Liked Dark, cruel and touching. I was a bit annoyed that when people spoke the same language they spoke it in English with Russian accent (or was it in Polish) anyway, why they couldn't spoke just normal English? It was nice to look at war movies other than what was about Nazi Germany.
