Storyline

THE COLLECTION is a gripping entrepreneurial fable set in France just after the Second World War. An ambitious designer is tasked to restore Paris' supremacy as the haute couture capital. His fresh vision will usher in a new romantic era lifting the post-war gloom and paving the way for optimism and romance. But can this business, spearheaded by two clashing brothers survive meteoric success? Dark secrets threaten to topple this empire at any moment; internal rivalries and betrayals, hateful bargains made to survive the Nazi occupation, and the twisted secret behind the master's success. The staff of the atelier survived one devastating war, but another looms, where personal battles and passionate love stories set family against family and the past against the future.

So-o-o-o-o-o-o slo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-w-w-w-w-w-w-w
11 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I tried really really really hard to like this.

Took immense effort to get through the pilot.

So-o-o-o-o-o-o slo-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-w-w-w-w-w-w-w. It was putting me to sleep.

Everything is so obvious and it's so easy to see where they're going, but who has the patience to wait for them get there already? Not me.

Too bad. Bad writing, directing, editing. Acting spotty and uneven. At some times okay. Others not so much.

Unfortunately once you've seen Pierre Thoretton's 'L'Amour Fou,' it's pretty hard to tolerate this.

Compared to that this is really pretty awful.

So, no, I cannot recommend it.

Giving it even two stars is generous.
