A forgotten gem ?
on 18 October 2014
A forgotten gem indeed; or rather nearly forgotten by me! Le rouge et le noir is a wonderful book;complex but compelling.This miniseries does the book justice.Of course being a television series it cannot follow the novel strictly to the letter but as a visual interpretation of the novel it is a convincing treat. Clearly money was spent on this production and filmed in France too
Acting,costumes and sets are all magnificent.
Another television version albeit in French is available on Youtube.It is similar and worth watching
