Unlike the other review, which seems to have been written by a cranky nitpicker who sees joy in nothing, this charming and sweet Italian series makes for relaxing and entertaining viewing. Shot in Milan, Rome and the countryside, it’s a fun sola at the Italian styles and mores of the s with a terrific cast. It’s fascinating to see how a department store is run from the inside, and the kind of decisions and sacrifices that need to be made to make it successful.


Unfortunately over-the-top organized crime and corruption is over represented as a plot device that pushes the series into “horrible Italian stereotype” territory, but it redeems itself with solid acting and character development. Unlike previous adaptions of “The Ladies Paradise”, this one is set in the s The set dressers lack of attention to detail catapults us into the 21st century when they add modern details like modern mini LED Christmas lights with a cobalt blue that was only produced in the past decadeVERY modern American mylar balloons, and holograph printed mylar wrapping paper and decorations something that didn’t exist until the s.

There may be a Sterling Cooper reference in the script, but the crew of “Mad Men” would never have made such colossal blunders when dressing a set!

My other nit to pick is the soundtrack; there’s only a dozen or so sampled bits of music that’s recycled for every bloody sequence, which gets fairly maddening for anyone who watches more than two episodes paradido a row.

RAI should cough up a few extra euros for some fresh tunes, vintage style bulbs, papers, and plain,opaque, period correct balloons!

The Ladies’ Paradise

Why would you end in that way? Felt left hanging and no news on a 3rd season!!!!


All that and it ends in a terribley Despite the good actors, characters are often poorly written and behave incomprehensibly. Also, the plot is full of either holes or deus ex machina -solutions. I recognize, however, that this series is not even trying to be realistic in that manner.

If you are able to overlook the sloppy writing, all the rest is very enjoyable to watch – from the 50s colourful and optimistic Milanese deelle to the beautiful young people and their love triangles. This is a poorly produced Italian TV soap opera that shares an obsession with s fashion much like the Spanish series “Velvet”. The story lines are almost identical and probably based on the same Emile Zola work.

The subtitle translation is pretty bad! I could not make it past the first episode which was quite silly The character are all 2 dimensional and the plot very predictable. If crinolines and s fashion are somethings you enjoy, then this will probably work for you. Audible Download Audio Books.
