Assuming you have watched Season 1 and 2, be sure you watch this season. It is at least as good as 1 and 2. Beginning Season 4 immediately. Great acting by all characters.

Well-acted, believably complex characters, compelling portrayals of morally gray decisions that people are forced to make under duress. Highly recommended.

The series gets darker with each year of the war. Recommend watching the interviews in the "Extras" to hear first-person accounts of real life.

This a great series. Start with Season 1, and you will be in love with several characters by Season 3, maybe even with a bad guy or gal or two. The story always leaves you craving more.
The acting is phenomenal. Presenting a fresh and exciting look at WWII seems impossible. But A French Village delivers a powerful punch. Elegantly filmed in a beautiful setting. I love this show!

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
