All the Light We Cannot See: A Netflix Adaptation Review
Anthony Doerr's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel "All the Light We Cannot See" has been adapted into a Netflix mini-series.
The show features a strong cast, stunning visuals and impressive cinematic lighting, creating an aesthetically pleasing experience.
The story is set in the French town of Saint-Malo during World War II, which is under Nazi occupation. The show's narrative revolves around two signal-crossed lovers.
Marie-Laure LeBlanc (played by Aria Mia Loberti) is a blind girl who reads braille excerpts from Jules Verne's "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" on the radio.
Her most dedicated listener is a reluctant Nazi soldier, Werner Pfennig (played by Louis Hofmann).
The story explores themes of love and connection during wartime with the backdrop of a beautiful yet occupied seaside city.
The pursuit of a cursed diamond by Marie's father and a Nazi officer adds an element of tension.
The mini-series is criticized for its inconsistent pacing and awkward jumps between timelines. These aspects create a disjointed viewing experience.
