A relevant interpretation of a classic novel.
13 April 2019 | by diggnutsSee all my reviews

While one could make many valid objection to adaptation of such literary prowess, the most important and perhaps to a new audience most impressive attribute of this adaptation lies in the fact that it shows that story telling is not by necessity a combination of needless suspense, shock, obfuscation or prolix and that a proper narrative is something that can be enjoyed multiple times.

In this era of corporately controlled cultural poverty, any form of media that could potentially introduce Eco to a new audience is something praiseworthy.

The series captures a sense of the era with nice cinematography and interweaving city state politics with the main story line. Instead of lazily consuming it, it intrigues and, at least for me, made me wonder and look up various historical events, places and people because of it.
