The definitive tv re-creation of Montgomerys famous book
11 March 2000 | by strauss-5See all my reviews

This mini series was without doubt,L.M.Montgomerys story visualised perfectly.Kim Braden beautifully brought Anne to life,in a way I feel no other actress ever has. No offence to all the fans of Megan Fallows,but I never enjoyed her interpretation of Anne,...she didn't bring out all of Annes innocent qualities,and rapturous love for all things living.Nor her dramatic passion. Kim Braden,however,did. Having loved the Green Gables books (and others in the series) from childhood to adulthood,I felt I was truly watching the world of Matthew,Marilla,Anne and Co through the authors eyes,in this perfectly filmed,acted and directed version of the classic childhood book.
