| best TV historical drama around
I've seen it on Russian television a year ago and I am still in desperate search for a hard copy. By any means the best television historical drama I've ever seen. Delicate approach to the theme, witty dialogues, perfect camera-work, excellent casting, stage design and color. Surprisingly fine tuned relationship and characters set-up. The director's and actors' work is brilliant, leaving enough out of the frame, still making the plot clear and enjoyable. Certain moments could leave the spectator literally breathless. The drama of the King's reluctance to meet his family duties and the further tradegy of his marriage are shown with great respect and perfect dose of irony. This is especially a plus for a country which is a monarchy. I'd wish every single moment of 18th century history was filmed like this, especially concerning the coming soon Touchstone's "Casanova". A must-see for everybody interested in historical drama. The authors deserve all praise.
