One of the best series in German TV - no: The Best
These days I see this exciting, extraordinary serial for the fourth or fifth time. I nearly can speak the dialogs with the actors. But "Löwengrube" again and again is not boring a second. For me the serial, directed very well by Rainer Wolffhardt and written by a master of film-scripts Willy Purucker, is really the best serial-work I have seen in German television. "Die Wiesingers" is good, "Ein Mann will nach oben" is very good, but this Bavarian family-saga is outstanding in every aspect. You see what's happened to three generations of the family Grandauer, ordinary people, which are strong and weak, brave and cowardly, dumb and clever, egoistic and social, sophisticated and simple... just like me and you. Great dialogs, especially in the era when Hitler grows up and police-officer Karl Grandauer in his office must take care for every word he says. Excellent actors, and Jörg Hube as Karl Grandauer must have an "Oscar" for his impressing job. Try to see it! Very big entertainment! Ten out of ten stars.
