from our French sources that there is a lot of exaggeration in the story serving the typical revisionist feminist agenda, so I'm guessing we have to take everything in the series with a grain of salt.

  1. Man I love stories that are based on true events. It's like imagining you were there - regardless of whether it's 100 percent true or not. Looking forward to this one!

    (Also, how have you been?)

  2. Bonfire?! That was a devastating fire like they have now in Australia. There were human tragedies following that fire.

    We've got a minor holiday called Lag Ba Omer which is celebrated by lighting bonfires all over the country. Well, every year there seem to be less and less bonfires as the Police and especially the firefighters have decided they don't wish to be heroes any more.

    1. Bonfire is a fire in which you often throw something in, in this case I'm guessing human destinies were thrown into it, it is not my translation but Netflix' official one :)
      I've never understood people's love towards burning fires, I hate fires almost as much as floods and open water.

    1. I think you can already catch it on French Netflix, it came there already I think.

  4. Well, of course they would plump up the story to make it more exciting. That's the movie business for you. Never fully sticking to the facts.

  6. The costumes are gorgeous and so are the women. I’ve always been a little in live with France- their character, language, and food! If we ever get Netflix, I will be sure to watch this one. How can they exaggerate something that’s already a tragedy?

    1. They can pump up the numbers or pump up on the feminism which wasn't really the part of that century.

    2. I see, I’ll make sure to do my research first. I never understood making a historical plot and then not sticking to facts. I get it with historical fiction, but come on! People are impressionable. I went ten years thinking Jack and Rose from Titanic were real along with the diamond. ...and I’m not even dumb!

    3. They like to do it with books too, like with atrocious changes in World of the Worlds and A Christmas Carol this year at BBC.
