Exceptional history lesson wrapped up in an fascinating soap opera
29 October 2017 | by JonathanWalfordSee all my reviews

Un VIllage Francais is exceptional story telling that evolves the characters over the duration of the War and lets you get to really know them. The 'shades of grey' moral involvement of these characters shift from good to bad and back as they encounter each other and manoeuvre to get what they want, or do what needs to be done. Most are just trying to live their lives as best they can, but some need the war to feel alive, while others shift inexplicably in character - the most puzzling one being the mayor's wife who goes from dutiful, faithful wife to traitor without apparent reason.

The history behind this series is flawless - and not just the historical events, but also the costumes, sets, and details. If I had to find fault it would be that events are not always true to the season in which they are filmed. August 1944 episodes were mostly filmed in early spring, judging by the bare leafed trees.

The 1943 story-line is the weakest of the series, with too much of the story focused on new characters involved with the Resistance - to the point that most other story lines and characters are put on hold. The 1943 season finale is also the weakest, bordering on laughably melodramatic. However, other seasons and story lines make up for this momentary dip in quality.
