Cathedral of the Sea Netflix Review

Cathedral of The Sea (La Catedral Del Mal) is a 2018 Spanish show that has 8 episodes and is based on a book by Ildefonso Falcones from 2006 (which has a follow up named Los herederos de la tierra/The Heirs of the Earth). It’s a rag-to-riches story set in a tumultuous era: plague, inquisition and anarchy.

In the heart of medieval Barcelona, from the Great Plague to the Inquisition, Arnau, a young peasant, endures the worst torments and humiliations to become a free man. His extraordinary destiny will make him the hero of a whole people. In the fourteenth century, to the rhythm of the construction of the church Santa María del Mar - masterpiece of Catalan Gothic built “for the people and by the people” in record time (fifty-seven years), Arnau Estanyol tries to conquer his freedom.


To The Lake: When Shit Hits The Fan

With a very interesting timing, To The Lake is a Russian show about a deadly epidemic that released on Netflix in late 2020. I’m not sure if this unfortunate coincidence kept some people away from it, but I’m glad I wasn’t put off.

Which Foreign Language Shows And Movies Do You Like?

I’ve always liked to consume different types of content. Not only different medias and genres, but also different origins. Recently I have been watching some great non-English (and non-Asian) TV shows and movies. Because of that, I decided to start a series of posts sharing some great recommendations, most of those from Europe.

Watched: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 3

When I started this show, the first 2 season were out already. AND I BINGED BOTH SO QUICKLY. It became of of those series I absolutely love (almost) everything about: the actors, story, setting, music, costumes, comedy. I even bought the first 2 seasons' OSTs in vinyl.

For some reason though, I started season 3 when it was released, but didn’t get to finish it at that time. And then I went to Brazil, and was locked there for 5 months… But coming back home decided to finally watch the second half of the season, and I loved it!!
