cette superbe mini-série est à voir. Celle de 1977 est très bien également. Près de 40 ans sont passées, les techniques de narrations et de prises de vues ont evoluées. Cette thematique meritait un traitement à la mesure du climat de replit qui regne a notre epoque (2016). L'esclavage reste d'actualité de nos jours. Et vu les multiples faits récents de racisme contre la population d'origine afro-americaine (voire meme africaine tout court) ce n'est pas une régression d'en parler. Et que ça serve de piqûre de rappel, car face à la peur, le combat n'est jamais fini. 😤😡

Je vous conseiĺle donc vivement de regarder cette saga de 4 épisodes.

this superb miniseries is to see. The 1977 is great also. Nearly 40 years have passed, the techniques of storytelling and photography has evolved. This thematic deserved treatment to the extent replit climate that reigns in our time (2016). Slavery remains topical today. And given the many recent acts of racism against people of African American origin (or even any short-African) this is not a regression to talk. And it serves as a wakeup call, because the face of fear, the fight is never over. 😤😡

I advise you strongly to watch this saga of 4 episodes.

Rien à voir avec la série original qui est bcp plus réaliste et l'émotion très forte!! Sur cette version manque de réalisme, le personne de kunta kinte ne vieilli pas malgré les années, la partie avec la guerre nord-sud prend trop de place et n'apporte rien à l'histoire!!!! Grosse déception...vaut mieux voir la série "underground" sur le même thème et qui est beaucoup plus punchy.

Je n'ai pas vu la série originale ni lu le livre. Mais ce qui est sûr, c'est que cette nouvelle version de Roots vaut la peine d'être vue, et vue de tous : jeunes, vieux, homme et femmes. C'est le genre de programme qui éveille les consciences, enseigne, et divertit en même temps. J'ai beaucoup aimé.

Ça fait un moment que ce commentaire a été poster mais il y a une autre mini-serie aussi sur l'esclavage qui est adapter d'un livre je ne sais pas si vous La connaissez c'est "The book of negroes" elle a 6 épisodes et est très forte en émotions je La conseille vraiment

Roots ( the original version) is Iconic.
I had by doubts about a reboot but seeing the casting and who is part of this ambitious project I feel hopeful.
The show will premiere on Memorial: Monday May 30, 2016 and will air over four consecutive nights.
The casting :
Forest Whitaker , Anna Paquin, Laurence Fishburne, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Anika Noni Rose , Tip “T.I.” Harris , Matthew Goode (“Dr. William Waller”), Mekhi Phifer , James Purefoy , Dereck Luke , Chad L. Coleman.

And The trailer looks incredible.

Questlove from The Roots will serve as executive music producer.

Please, be good!

Oh my god Underground is just finished and I absolutely loved it, an amazing show and I hope this is as good as it, but by the cast I can already say it will! The only bad part is that I'm gonna suffer again watching black people getting treated like shit, during the racist scenese on Underground I was almost crying.

Je n'ai pas vu la série originelle mais j'ai trouvé ce remake plutôt bon et intéressant (quand on sait que ça a vraiment existé tout ça, c'est choquant et en même temps c'est une bonne piqûre de rappel pour ne pas oublier...).
La façon dont c'est écrit rappelle "the book of negroes" en terme de rythme et ça ressemble aussi à "underground".

Agree ... after watching vikings and roots trailer 👍🙄

This show was an excellent reimagining of the original Roots. The acting was great and I feel that the explored more of the intricacies of slavery, including slave revolt on the ship, than they did in the original. Excellent miniseries!

Fabulous ! I only saw the pilot and even if he was quiet long, I was never bored ! The acting is very good, it makes us feel what they feel: hapiness, sadness, anger, pain... The landscapes are amazing ! It's a very good show but it will brrak your heart !
