DVD Review – September 2020 – Mark David Hatwood

Dark Starring Louis Hofmann, Karoline Eichhorn, Lisa Vicari, Directed by Baran bo Odar

Set in the fictional German town of Winden, this Netflix series concerns the aftermath of a child’s disappearance, which exposes the secrets of and hidden connections among four estranged families as they slowly unravel a sinister time travel conspiracy which spans several generations.

Even though this German language series can seem to have disadvantages for those who aren’t used to subtitles, I can’t suggest strongly enough how you should overcome those misgivings. Unlike most other series where one’s concentration can wane, this series had me gripped from the get-go and didn’t let up.

Great acting, a superb concentrated storyline and sharp direction, it will keep you guessing up to the last scene.

Verdict: One of the best foreign language series in recent years. ****
