Rare to find but strongly recommended !!! Like Hitchcock for kids !
Its a shame that many people don't know this television mini series. I have seen the German translated version but i don't know if its available in other languages than dutch and German. It is absolutely necessary to watch them in chronological order otherwise you will get (even more) confused. The music also is very precise and fits in perfectly. If you are in adventure like young Indiana Jones then go for it. I think of it as one of the best series ever made -not only for kids, because the acting is very professional- with real suspense. Franz the red only is worth watching. He is a pretty smart actor and surely every kid likes him to be their teacher. The story to me is a mixture of PSI and adventure sometimes a little bit overdone but very sympathetic (everyone dreams about mystery). Call it a Hitchcock Movie for kiddies. Hardly recommended! Watch it!
