I thoroughly enjoyed this first series of MY BRILLIANT FRIEND. The casting was a little awkward, matching up the young then the teenage actors, but the performances soon swept you along. (My only advice is keep track of the family units.) Complex story telling. Informative look at the working poor in the 50s and 60s post-war Italy. Some twists you don't expect, but an intimate look at friendship. Can't wait for series two next fall (possibility of 4 series that will follow the quintet of books). I give this first series an 8 (great) out of 10. [Drama]


The way this show's been made so far, from a cinematic point of view, is incredible. Some of the most inspired directional choices I've seen on tv lately, made even more interesting by the direct reference to the books and the way the show has excelled in the "show, don't tell" rule, even though it is based on a very introspective source material. They balanced Lenú's narration with simply showing us what she's thinking through visual cues, metaphors, camera angles, focus techniques, etc. It's excellent and super exciting to watch as a huge fan of the novels. The acting is phenomenal (I never even found any interest in Stefano in the books but what the actor did with the character here made him one of the most interesting ones to watch). Book two was my favourite in the series and season two was my favourite of the two so far as well. Let's see how season 3 fares with a more adult and political story to go off of.


Beautiful friendship story with well-written characters in one of the best television adaptations of a hit novel. There is a delicacy in the portrait of these characters, who sometimes act almost incomprehensible, but always consistent. And a perfect portrait of the annihilation of women as a person: "They had been devoured by the bodies of their husbands, fathers and brothers ..."


Country: United States?? But it's in Italy


She saw her future and she was completely lost.


She waits forever, while Leila keeps fighting for what she wants. I am afraid of those who are truly educated, those who are at ease with themselves. I am who I am and family is family. Good grades are not enough.

Über mich

Ich bin Sophie und das ist meine Website.

Ein bisschen über mich 👋 Ich bin ein Marketing-Student in Paris. Ich liebe es, Nachmittage mit Freunden in einem Café oder Park zu verbringen.

Aber mehr als alles andere liebe ich es, an regnerischen Sonntagen oder an jedem sonnigen Tag Serien auf meinem Computer zu sehen (.. binging…) 🙈

Ich muss inzwischen Hunderte von Shows gesehen haben, von Romantik bis zu Science-Fiction-Serien. Oft gehe ich gerne zu einer Show zurück, die mir Spaß gemacht hat. Aber ich habe keine Lust, es mir noch einmal anzuschauen ...

Ich habe diese Website erstellt, damit ich und andere die besten Folgen unserer Lieblingssendungen finden können. Bis heute habe ich ungefähr 1.000 Shows auf der Website mit Stimmen und Bewertungen von Fans.

Hoffentlich können Sie sich mir von Ihrem Sofa aus anschließen und einen schönen Fernseher genießen!
