Excellent series on MHz streaming service

If you have the MHz streaming TV service, I highly recommend a wonderful Italian series called The War is Over. It's set in northern Italy immediately after WWII and is about a group of Jewish adults who take in children released from the concentration camps who no one claimed. The story is based on a real-life account by Aharon Megged called Story of the Selvino Children.
It's a very moving and entertaining 8-episode mini-series. The actor who played The Young Montalbano is one of the main characters.

Thank you for the recommendation! I will put it on the list to watch when we are finished with “The Good Karma Hospital”..

You mean there was a Montalbano before Luca Zingaretti?

Lola, not really before Luca Z. The Young Montalbano is a prequel series about Montalbano that was done in 2012 and 2015. It's pretty good, and fun to watch. But I like Luca as Montalbano much better.

Thank you for the suggestion. MHz Choice is a great network/streaming service that we get through Amazon Prime. Murder In is also an excellent series which features new French villages every episode. So, you get a murder mystery and gorgeous scenery at the same time.

Thanks for the recommendation for the French Murder In. I plan to go to France next spring, so this will be a nice show to watch! The French show The Art of Crime is also very good.

The name Montalbano is a homage to the Spanish writer Manuel Vázquez Montalbán;[6] the similarities between Montalban's Pepe Carvalho and Camilleri's fictional detective are noteworthy. Both writers make use of their protagonists' gastronomic preferences.
