Quotes

Dominick Birdsey: I'm not a smart man, particularly. But one day, at long last, I stumbled from the dark woods on my own, and my family's and my country's past, holding in my hands these truths. That love grows from forgiveness. That from destruction comes renovation. That the evidence of God exists in our connections to one another. This much, at least I figured out, I know this much is true.

Closure- or window that's been opened?
15 June 2020 | by v-theaSee all my reviews

Great ending for this tv series which is only of six episodes. Well edited and great themes. I know it's based on a book , but I haven't read that one yet (though I intend to) so my thoughs will be just regarding what I saw. What impressed me about this drama is the fact that it talked about a series of themes which are quite known to pretty much all of us. The great themes around human existance. But it did with a quiet and contained reverence. That for me made it more real. The end left me with the sensation that there was an opened window for another type of relation with some of these charecters, a type of relation regarding a prehistoric sense of the world, meaning a precapitalist sense of the world where you do something for others even though there's nothing to gain of it, even though you don't like them... but because they're part of your community. I liked this idea of community and the need to learn from our past, to embrace it, to make ourselves better and the way in which we relate to others as well. Memory is an important thing, and we cannot let stories or those who have suffered be forgotten from history as time advances. Overall, it was a thoughtful and respectful show.
