Powerful Film
17 April 2006 | by buttlerkSee all my reviews

I have been a fan of Danielle Steele since I was a teenager! I haven't read her books in a long time and "The Ring" was not something that I have read. I came across that movie on cable as I was channel surfing ironically the night my ex-fiancée received my engagement ring back. I just saw the title and it caught my eye.

Once I saw the important scene in the beginning I was hooked! This miniseries was well done portraying Nazi Germany. I took a class in College on that topic and hardly any movies made about World War II go into the lives of people on the German side the focus is more on the Allies. It portrayed how a family who were the Elite during the war were at the same time against it I'm sure they were people like the family portrayed in the film. The heroine was very brave as she gracefully went through to survive her struggles after having many tragedies occur in a short period of time. I hope to read the book since the story seems very fascinating.The casting was sensational!
