Starring Oliver Jackson-Cohen and Vanessa Redgrave. Directed by Michael Samuels.
This is a stunning two-part series based on a novel that tells the stories of two forbidden relationships. The first concerns two soldiers just after World War II and the second is about one of their offspring who falls in love with a good-looking man, but at first, they don’t seem right for each other. This is a gentle, nuanced and tender tale of love in which emotions and forbidden desires are presented in such a stylish way, and with so much empathy, that you cannot help but be moved. Sensitive, beautifully directed and with a strong, compassionate script – it is highly recommended.
