mere TV-series like that !
11 September 2005 | by saoirse-4See all my reviews

I was twice lucky to watch this TV-series. First of all because it was shown just once in France and on a cable channel. Then it's such a good programed ! Actors/actresses are brilliant, and 15 years later you can spot the names of David Arquette, Heather McComb, Michael Madsen or Billy Bob Thornton in the cast ! It could easily be the cast of a feature film. And of course you have Coppola. It's also full of poetry, nostalgia and every situation is shown in a humanistic way. It's warm, intelligent. Dialogues and characters are good. Too bad for me I can't find the right words in English to describe all the feelings I had when I watched it. Anyway this series is like a family album you open on a cold night. You watch pictures and you remember the events linked with them. They can be sad or happy moments but what is sure is they were relevant for you and they shaped what you've become.
