A Fine Production
14 October 2018 | by paul_bibbySee all my reviews

This review is based on the 1st episode. I hope the rest of the series maintains the standard. That said, as the series is an anthology, each episode should be viewed individually.

If you like a witty, charming, well acted, beautifully shot drama produced with a style rarely found on TV then this is for you.

The characters are fully three dimensional and yet, due to the superb screenplay, the story moves along at a good pace.

I'd best describe Episode 1 as a classic French romantic contemporary drama with plenty of wonderful dialogue.

Anushka, the matriarch, played superbly by Marthe Keller, has some wonderful lines and indeed the whole episode revolves around her presence. Even when she's not in a scene her personality is hovering in the background.

I've found a few of Amazon's TV shows falling a bit short of the mark but this is right on the money. Of course, if you don't like light comedy dramas you probably won't like this. They often fall short of expectations. Either they have no drama or are too weak, comedically. This has sufficient elements of both to at least please this viewer.
