Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The entertaining, yet violent wartime miniseries (available subtitled and dubbed in English) is a WWI tale told through the eyes of four women who find themselves supporting the war effort. Marguerite, Suzanne, Caroline, and the Mother Superior represent the different roles that women historically played during the first world war while the men were away. Granted, each of their stories offers a fair amount of melodrama, which includes illicit romances, betrayals, and espionage. But while not perfect, these women are strong, and push against the patriarchal systems that persist despite the crisis in which they find themselves.
