I just absolutely, completely loved this! I started watching this with very low expectations and I think I've always been put off by the title "war and peace" to be honest. It makes it sound so flat and boring but this really was anything but boring! Great story, great acting, great characters, great everything.
I'm off to read the book now because I have to have more of this.
First episode was a little slow and confusing, there's a lot of characters and setting up the plot, should be easier for someone familiar with the work. After each episode it just keeps getting better, after the show completes I would have to rate the entirety very high. It comes full circle and covers all types of aspects of love, betrayel, and war. Top notch acting by the entire cast and some of the most beautiful shots. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a deep show and willing to push past the first episode.
This was the first show I found myself rooting for a character like a girl does with soap operas. Absolute stunning cinematography, casting, and of course an unforgettable story. Each episode is needed to really make it happen. A movie will never do it justice.
