The Young Montalbano: Complete Collection One & Two - Francesco Bruni [DVD]
All the episodes from the first two series of the spin-off of the Italian drama 'Inspector Montalbano', based on the novels by Andrea Camilleri. Michele Riondino plays the title character who is reassigned to his hometown of Vigata to tackle the many mysteries that arise there - providing he can avoid becoming distracted by his love for Livia Burlando (Sarah Felberbaum). Series 1 episodes are: 'The First Case', 'New Year's Day', 'Back to Basics', 'Mortally Wounded', 'The Third Secret' and 'Seven Mondays'. Series 2 episodes are: 'The Man Who Followed Funerals', 'Room Number Two', 'Death On the High Seas', 'The Transaction', 'The Honest Thief' and 'An Apricot'.
Young Montalbano Series 1: The picture froze hard in three of the six Episodes, namely : New Year's Day, The Third Secret, &
Seven Mondays. This seriously marred my enjoyment.
Series 2 was fine.
Interesting stories, good acting, fine scenery. But the fault mentioned was a very serious drawback.
