Challenging, if slow-moving, supernatural mystery mini-series
19 April 2018 | by gridoon2020See all my reviews

The best thing about this five-episode mini-series is its structure: not exactly confusing, but it does require full attention - and a strong memory - as three separate time periods (1968, 1987, 2010) crisscross and several characters are played by multiple actors at different ages. The acting by everyone is fine, and the moody atmosphere is reminiscent of the later "The Returned". The stories move slowly; the 4th episode teases us about the same things that the 1st episode teased us about. By the time we get to the resolution, it is questionable if it was worth the investment of 225 minutes. Well-done, but only tentatively recommended. **1/2 out of 4.
