Fenix Not one wasted moment-a meditation for viewers who don't mind thinking
This was quite the surprise. In first 10,minutes nor dialogue practically, just ominous plotting in a bleak but captivating landscape. I was just waiting for the cut to the office where the banal small talk would have made me change the channel, but it never came. The plot just keeps moving with minimal words, no wasted melodrama and anticipation of the story and motives revealing themselves.
But surprisingly the reveals never really come or just raise more questions.
Very subdued yet imminent feeling and with the entrance of Ms Rifka an alluring sharp tough and yes attractive woman determined to pierce the veils of bad actors as well as questionable officials it's hard not to watch all episodes in a single day.
After a hard week at work, and the shallowness of the current social malaise this series is a welcome relief from the social shallowness promoted everywhere in our culture and politics and embraced by the rubes who do their bidding.
