band of brothers

I finally bought the boxset of Band of Brothers yesterday. I don’t know what took me so long having watched the series on tv and completely falling in love with it.

Everytime I see it, I’m amazed at the production values, especially for a tv series. The muted colours, the crisp dialogue, the excellent casting and acting – everything adds to this amazing programme, made even more brilliant and incomprehensable by the fact that it’s based on truth. I still gasp each time a soldier dies. 

I’ve also just finished re-reading Anne Frank’s diary after visiting the ‘Secret Annexe’ in Holland and staying in the WW2 theme, next on the list is The Book Thief. After that it’s probably time to read/watch something I haven’t already devoured seeing as there’s nearly a gazillion books and films on my list to get that I will never ever catch up on.  But it’s fun trying.
