One of the best series I have ever watched. The slowness of some acts mixed with overwhelmingly speedy scenes, faded colours, the shades… To me, it was marvellous. Before watching it, some people had mentioned to me that they liked it but, overall, it was too slow for them. I could not disagree more. From the first to the last episode, I could not stop feeling a silent but persistent rush. Every episode, every scene, they got my whole attention. For me, the fact that I only wanted, and allowed myself, to watch one episode at a time means that this series really captured me. I have come to realise that most of those series that one might think they love because they cannot stop watching them, are like fast food.
The only thing I regret is finding out that there was a book only after I had finished watching it. Or maybe that was a good thing, I will only find out after reading it. From what I have seen, I have liked it that much that I have even had the need to express it and put it into words (and a few pictures). If anyone ever reads this and wants to leave their views here, it will be a pleasure to hear what your thoughts are.
Last but not least, if you ever want to play a game of chess, hit me up.
