A very unique series
18 December 2018 | by christian-bjSee all my reviews

At first I wasn't that invested in this show mainly because I'm not either Christian or religious at all. A few chapters in and suddenly I was intrigued. The series of course evolves around themes as faith and God but it is so much more than only God and religion. The show's about people, family, love, hate, despair, pain, human suffering and everything you could image about being a complex human being. I fell in love with many of the characters but not before despising them and resenting their actions first. The cast is so amazing that they with credibility portray their roles in a way that you really believe them and believe in them. It shows the many nuances of a being alive and it deals with the many struggles of being a human being in a way I've never seen before in a tv series. This show, Herrens Veje ( the lords's way or road -in Danish) has touched me nearly in a religious way (and I'm an atheist!) with its tone and it's dealings with the many facets of life -whether you are a believer in God or not. The subtle yet deep portrayal of the human mind and the struggles of being alive dealing with death, depression, hate, forgiveness, love, is simply amazing. It's provocative. It hurts you, moves you. It's warm and loving. It's showing how to love. How to hate. And shows how to forgive and move on in times of despair and loneliness. A very unique series, one of a kind. A God's sent to my television set.
