Seeing that you may be as intrigued as I was when I first saw this poster. What the heck happened to NY city ? Let’s discover that together !
“The future belongs to those who change it”
Hello dear people,
Today’s an important day since it’s the first time ever I’m going to write about a TV show. The first-one I succeeded in finishing, that’s a red-letter achievement in my little life.
But let’s stop talking nonsense and focus about the amazing thing I’m going to deal with. As you read it in the title, this is called “The Man in the High Castle”. Did you know it was based on a sci-fi book written by Philip K. Dick ? No ? now, you know at least.
Well, summarizing the story won’t be easy but I’ll try to make something spoiler-free and a lit’ entertaining.
Right, imagine that something in our history drastically changed, I mean an important event.
What if the Allies didn’t win WWII ? And if the Axis (aka Germany, and Japan mainly) did ? Well you’ve got the context of The Man in the High Castle. That’s what you call “alternate history”.
Now in these dark times, where the world is ruled by the german “Reich” (=Empire in german), the story that interests us is set in the USA. No, not the usual USA you know, rather the USA that is split in 3 parts :
In this TV show, you’ll follow the story of several characters, and besides what makes also the strength of it, is the fact that you don’t follow only one type of person. Clearly, you’ll face the story of a Nazi man, a Japanese inspector, resistance‘s activists, parents and so on.
I assure you won’t get lost and that is really interesting to have different opinions about what’s going on, and sometimes you know things that others ignore… That is really well done & convincing since all the stories have a link ya see, it adds a great dramatic intensity to the show, sometimes the suspense kills you ! It’s freaking well made, you’ll shiver I guarantee !
« Each one of these films shows a reality like our, but not ours ». Here the link, the Man in the High Castle produces films. But not ordinary films, it shows something different, that is considered as a threat for Hitler (he’s still alive in this world since the story is set in the 60s)… You’ll discover why.
Last but not least my dears, the actors in this show are AWESOME, but really. They’re playing their role and it’s great. It’s not the average TV show with shitty (sorry) actors. They may be no famous like DiCaprio, Will Smith (I don’t say they’re bad actors 😉 just an
example ! I’m talking about the fame) but really Rufus Sewell, Joel de la Fuente, Alexa Davalos, Luke Kleintank and the others are just simply amazing. The same for the filming, the shots, the set, the props, the visual effects, the story : everything will blow your mind. Ahaha but don’t expect it to be funny, it’s not.
In a nutshell, even if you don’t like history, you may like this TV Serie since it has many, many qualities. What could be even better than a show, in which you can hear english, german & japanese ? 3 in 1, that’s a good deal, I say 😉
