Frankreich während des ersten Weltkrieges: Im Militärhospital Besancon hält sich Krankenschwester Véronique d'Hergemont (Claude Jade) seit 14 Jahren vor ihrem verhaßten Ehemann Vorski versteckt. Die Nachricht von seinem Tod und das Auftauchen ihrer Initialen in einem Stummfilm führen Véronique auf eine geheimnisvolle Insel, die von Geistern und Druiden beherrscht scheint. Grausame Prophezeiungen von einem Massaker an dreißig Menschen erfüllen sich und Véronique stellt sich einem scheinbar aussichtslosen Kampf... Das phantastische Abenteuer, das erst 1996 seine deutsche Erstausstrahlung hatte, basiert auf dem Roman "Die Insel der dreißig Särge" von Maurice Leblanc. Deutscher Titel: "DIE INSEL DER DREISSIG TODE". Written by Cisandie <Karl.Fleischer@munich.netsurf.de>

Fine miniseries
19 April 2005 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

Adapted from the wonderful Maurice Leblanc's novel,it is a very exciting if a bit slow-moving miniseries.Claude Jade,whom Truffaut's lovers know quite well (She was the heroine of the Antoine Doinel Saga ) ,is well cast as Veronique,a young woman who finds back her son and her father on a Breton Island and gets involved in a very strange story,including old ceremonies,druids ,murders ,human sacrifices ....All that a contemporary dud such as "Broceliande" intended to do (and dismally failed) magnificently works here.As Veronique becomes more and more alone,the suspense and the terror rise,and grab the audience till the last episode.

Spoiler:Leblanc's novel was faithfully transferred to the TV screen,with only a big difference:Arsene Lupin,who intervenes only at the end of the book anyway,is completely absent.Some people complained about it at the time.But as "and then there were none" did not need any Hercule Poirot, this Leblanc gem could do without him.
