I am hooked on this Series. So good once a person gets into it, and even better being able to watch several episodes at once and not having to wait week by week. I've watched seasons 1 & 2 and asked the library to order the rest of the seasons. There are apparently seven with the last just airing in 2016 or 2017

It is very interesting to see the change in the viewpoint of the characters; will they continue to remain true to their values ?

My new favorite show continues to blow me away in Season 2. I love the story, the setting, but most of all, I love these characters.
I am still amazed that A French Village provides a fresh perspective on a war that you think has been overdone.
The lives of French villagers caught in the middle makes WWII feel personal.
Cinematography, wardrobe, casting, historical research -- everything is perfect! The actors and their powerful performances keep you craving more. Start with Season 1 and be amazed.

This is not meant to be a documentary of occupied France. In places it was a little like a soap opera, but I enjoyed keeping track of who was sleeping with whom. Each episode ended with a cliffhanger to be resolved. I study a lot of WWII history. This a very entertaining, intricate story that illustrates a bitter period of time for France without simply being a series of facts. It focuses on a number of characters both French citizens / resistance, German soldiers, Nazi SS / SD, and French collaborators. There are 5 sets of 12 episodes, one for each year of the German occupation of France, 1940-1944. The series is in French with subtitles. I became very engrossed in several characters, both good and evil, and really wanted to know their fates. Not really a spoiler, but one of my favorite characters is killed. Several other individuals sort of disappear into an unknown future and several strong story lines were simply dropped. ****** SPOILER ALERT *** I did not like that the French resistance forces were portrayed as worse than the Germans in many cases in the last episodes. There were, I am certain, abuses by the resistance toward Germans and collaborators after liberation, but to have abusive Frenchmen be the "stars" of the last episodes was very disappointing to me. I still recommend the series even though I enjoyed only 56 of the 60 episodes. Kristi & Abby Tabby
