Blown away
9 February 2020 | by technicolour-63243See all my reviews

Have to say this is mind-blowing tv - like a filmic symphony: soaring humanity and scorching brutality; the price of war and the cost of survival; love, hate, humour, courage, honour, corruption, hope, tragedy; all swirling like a storm around a father's desperate race to save his family. Filmed with luminous depth, the actors invariably shining, this is an immensely gripping, powerful, moving and really quite awe-inspiring journey.
