Storyline

Set in 1935 when the Englishwoman Louisa Durrell, whose life had fallen apart, decided to move from Bournemouth to the Greek island of Corfu. Her husband had died some years earlier and she has financial problems, when she suddenly announces that she and her four children will move to the island and a Homeric battle ensues as the family adapt to life on the island, especially when they discover that Corfu does not even have electricity at that time. But it is cheap, an earthly paradise and the Durrell family make the big step that will change their lives. Written by Vidas

User Reviews

 
Heart warming but in a good way
15 December 2017 | by LLgoatJSee all my reviews

This tells the story of a 1930's typical English family moving to Corfu and trying to make a life and living.

Normally I can't stand heart warming fuzzy stuff like this. Period stuff even more. Yet this is nice to watch. They are a nice family and get on most of the time. They occasionally fall out. They don't spend their time trying to get one over each other or others. There is little swearing and sex (no nudity other than the odd bare shoulder). It is just a nice program to watch.

I have never read the books and never would. This though tugs at the heart strings and is generally a nice little program to watch with all the family.
