Low budget and poorly put together series
19 August 2017 | by qui_jSee all my reviews

This seemingly low budget TV series would appear to the German version of "A French Village". Both take place after the end of WW2, and both depict the lives of people and places impacted by the downfall of Germany. The main difference between the two series is that the German version is just 3 episodes long (thankfully) while the French version went on forever, dragged out until viewers could no longer remember (or care) who the characters were or what they did during the war. The acting in the German series is pretty terrible, and because so much had to be included in the short time, the editing is very choppy, leading to a storyline that is difficult to follow. Events occur without adequate explanation, which leaves viewers scratching their heads due to a lack of continuity and character development. Most of the characters are stereotyped, with dialog that is pretty mundane and scripted. There is the usual fight between capitalism and communism, and that pretty much sums up the series. It's a forgettable series that one might not include on a list of films to watch....unless there's absolutely nothing else to do!
