This wasn’t a great first episode. The acting was poor. I didn’t believe there was any emotion there. Personally I wouldn’t recommend.

Unlike many classic adaptations the BBC has put out in the past, problem after problem plagues Little Women and stops the series from being a truly enjoyable watch. 

The book itself is largely written in a sweet, innocent voice/tone, and it works well within the text. However, when translating or trying to capture that same voice or spirit in actual dialogue for the screen, it comes off as amateurish or overly sentimental when spoken aloud. The text's tone is actually one of the reasons why this book is difficult to adapt. It is not the acting that lets the series down, rather it is the words that are unbelievable. People simply don't/didn't speak in such a way, even in the Victorian period. If this version is trying to modernize the girl's characters/eccentricities and the story's main message, why could it not modernize the language a bit or be a little more age appropriate- of course, still keeping it in line with the book's tone. An adaptation of Little Women should strike a balance between the two parts of the girl's and Laurie's journey into adulthood. First, establishing the way things are and have always been in the March home in a playful tone, and then, as they are forced to change through the circumstances of life and love, the tone becomes more heartwarming and more mature. From the get-go, this version applies a serious and mature tone despite the language used, so, there is never a real transformation in character/perspective for any of the children, only in the circumstances they find themselves in.

Another glaring problem is the editing and structuring of the plot. Simply put, many scenes are too short; the scenes are like snapshots; they tell the basic story from a surface, visual level, but it lacks any depth, detail, or real explanation. This version misses the opportunity, being that it is longer and has more time, to include parts that have been left out of adaptations before it- parts that develop or establish the characters, their relationships, and their motives (examples, Jo visiting Laurie when ill, meeting Mr. Lawrence, Laurie's backstory and mother, the girls engaging in Jo's plays, Laurie joining in). Actually, this version excludes more than it adds, which is a little baffling. How can so much be glossed over?

The last problem is the accompanying score. If I am not mistaken, the music used within the series seems to be lifted from or inspired by the Radio 4 play of Little Women. Which is an odd choice, being that it is not of the period. Adding a modern score can work, but here, it is a miss-match.

Though the 94 film has its faults as well, it remains the best crack at adapting Alcott's work, which is disappointing seeing that the BBC had so much potential.

Bellissima fotografia e buona recitazione, molto fedele ai romanzi e a tratti migliore del celebre film!

Ma sarà basato solo sul primo libro? Oltretutto avevo capito che sarebbe andato in onda per la festa della mamma nel 2018, non la prossima settimana 🤔

But will it be based only on the first book? Besides, I realized that it was going to be on Mother's Day in 2018, not next week 🤔

I have just watched 2 episodes, love the style, costumes and the atmosphere of it, it's visually satisfying, the acting alright it's not so bad and not so good, but there's something wrong, something missing the story goes so fast I couldn't enjoy the story lines of the characters in this mini series, also I was surprised by Amy's age! She should be 12 years old but they put a grown up girl looks like 17 years old, and unfortunately I didn't like Jo here while she's my favorite character in Little Women, I had a high expectations for this adaptation because it's from BBC but it turned not.

The acting is so horrible. Surprised how awful this is. BBC rarely disappoints me but this time they have succeeded.

It’s visually stunning and I loved looking at it for awhile but then Amy happened and she ruined the whole experience for me.

Un classico che vale sempre la pena guardare anche se si conosce già la trama! Peccato siano solo 3 episodi

I rally loved this: it’s a wonderful adaptation. Splendid actors, very characteristic: especially the actresses portraying Jo, Beth and Amy earned my love and admiration. The costumes and sets are lovely and it’s a really cute and enjoyable show. Too bad that it’s very fast-paced and maybe even a little too fragmented. Still: wonderful.

Mini serie fatta meravigliosamente bene, curata nei minimi dettagli, dalla fotografia ai costumi!
Questo romanzo è crudele fino nel midollo, ti strappa via tutti i sentimenti possibili e immaginabili, ma è stupendo e questa mini serie gli rende completamente giustizia!
