They don't make them like this anymore
8 September 2000 | by rzg-3See all my reviews

I saw this series as I child, and insisted that my parents tape it - as a matter of fact I gave them hell when they once forgot to program it - and for a good reason!

The first time I encountered "Sans famille" or as it is known in Israel "Be'eiyien mishpacha" was when Israel radio turned it into a radio series in the late 70's. I loved the performance so I read the book, which was every bit as good.

So when Israel Television decide to screen the TV show in the early 80s I went through the roof! And let me tell that the TV show had lived up to my very high expectations.

Fabrice Josso is excellent and so are Jean Franval and Gerrard Derrieu. Petula Clark is simply.... marvellous. I still have the tapes, and I watch them whenever I can - my family thinks I'm crazy.

THUMBS WAY WAY WAY UP!!!!
