This is a special four part mini-series based on Rosamunde Pilchers drama: Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring. Focusing on the Combes family and their magnificent country estate Endellion. Patriarch Alex reigns over the estate with a mildness that infuriates his eldest son Stephen, a high-powered financier, but perfectly suits his younger, more relaxed son Charles. After many years of unruffled tranquility, life at Endellion is about to enter a turbulent new phase with the return of Stephen s ex-wife, and division over her granddaughter Abby, whose mother had died never revealing the father s name. Scandal, vengeance, jealousy and desire rage as furiously as the sea in this powerful drama from bestselling author Rosamunde Pilcher.
A very enjoyable soapy family drama. Domestic Abuse, Cheating boyfriend v. lovable boy next door, suicide, long lost grannies coming home, shocking twists, evil grandpa, and financial shenanigans, a stunning last will and testament, plus much much more! Senta Berger shines as the wise and attractive grandmother who gets a second chance at love with a charming and funny Tom Conti. I couldn't take my eyes off her nose though. The director could have chosen more flattering angles. Michael York is very effective as the powerful older son of the family patriarch who oozes menace out of every pore. What made this 4 part yarn hold together though, in my opinion, of the sweet young daughter played by Emma Watson look-alike Paula Kalenburg. She had to endure many jolts to the system both good and bad but carried on with aplomb. Confrontations and promises of confrontations abound keeping tension and suspense in play. There are two major shocks in the last two parts that put the icing on the cake.
