Parts "The Godfather", "Downton Abbey" and a pinch of "Dallas"
jpmist29 July 2019
This series starts with the end of WWII in Sweden, We meet a family of two brothers, a sister and mother who run the formal restaurant and follow them and others thru divorces, betrayals, triumphs and scandals involving a cast of characters not quite as large as "Downton Abbey" but equally as engaging.

The cinematography beautifullly captures the vintage post WWII era similar to "The Godfather II" with very careful framing, lighting and camera movement. The production quality as well as acting is on par with any top notch Masterpiece Theatre production. It's plotting isn't as crass as "Dallas" but it's very much a family drama with triangulation conflicts every which way you can imagine. The pacing is a tad slow and languid but that gives you time to admire the sets, costumes and lighting as well as marvel at where they got all the 1950's era cars they pack the streets with during outdoor scenes.

I'm astonished I'm writing the first review of this show on this site. One month of Sundance Now is only 5 bucks and it's the best money you'll spend to watch this series. This is a very high quality show I'm going to regret finishing. I pray it goes to season 3.

Cliche ridden, every plot turn is utterly predictable

Nothing wrong with intentionally copying Downton Abby, but this is over the top with hamhanded anachronistic PC applied to the idea. It makes so many, essentially all, of the plot movements artificial and forced -- yet utterly predictable.

Everything is too accentuated, stereotyped and completely inauthentic.
