| Rewarding Exxperience
Showtime/Starz has given viewers a refreshing and rewarding experience in running the limited series "Maximilian" this spring, an insightful exploration of Fifteenth Century European history, concentrating on France, Germany, Austria and Hungary. At the time, France consisted of somewhat independent provinces, as did Germany, the greatest part of Germany known as the Holy Roman Empire. This focus on these countries is a refreshing change from the usual concentration on British history that we're offered in the category of Old World history.

Also refreshing is the absence of melodramatic soap histrionics characteristic in Hollywood productions. If the actors in "Maximilian" at times seemed too stone-faced, the viewer must take into account the behavior standards of royals and aristocrats both in previous centuries and in modern times. This does not mean there is a lack of emotional expression, just that it is more tempered, allowing for some highly charged scenes at pivot points along the way.

There is some frankly presented nudity and the brutality of the times, but not overly graphic. One nude scene in particular provides one of the most hilarious scenes in the world of cinema.

It was particularly rewarding to see this series in German and French with subtitles, much to be preferred over dubbing. Amazingly, the characters all communicated with one another across language barriers, each speaking in his/her native language, while seeming to understand one another perfectly.

I highly recommend "Maximilian." Don't pass this one up.
