I have now seen the 8 available Brunetti episodes and I hope there will be more soon. I had wondered if the fact that they were done in German would detract from the Venetian flavor of the setting, but it didn't--not at all. The setting and the photography are both superb. The actors match the characters very well--even though Brunetti and his wife were changed after the 4th episode. The scenery and the characters are warm even though the stories are gritty enough. The secondary characters, Vianelli, Elettra, Patta, are all excellent.

After reading a dozen of the books (from our local library) we had to try one of the DVDs. Yes, it is in German, with English subtitles, but still the characters come to life: check out Senora Elettra : remarkable!

Once I got over the shock of hearing Venetians speaking German, I found the programme excellent. I liked the action, the actors, the scenery - everything, really. I would recommend it to anyone.

Donna Leon Brunetti Episodes 3 & 4 July 24 2011
By D.A.T. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The television version of two of Donna Leon's popular books about a Venetian Detective. Produced by a German company in German, but with English subtitles, which work well. Photographed mostly, if not totally in Venice. Loved the books, loved these productions, definitely recommend them. We have now also purchased episodes 1 & 2.

Love Brunetti, even though it is in German. :-) May 24 2013
By Thomas Robert Gier - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Absolutely love this series: fantastic setting (Venice), great acting, great plots, and it's in German. What? Yes, when I began watching the fist episode in Series 1, I have purchased Series 1-6, I thought my hearing was going bad. I am reading the English subtitles and hearing German, not Italian. No problem at all, since the subtitles are very well done, but somewhat a surprise. Brunetti is definitely on the same excellent level as other Italian detective series, such as "Fog & Crimes" and "Montalbano."

Brunetti speaks German March 6 2014

I have read all of the Brunetti mysteries and was expecting the movies to be in Italian with English subtitles. I was surprised to find they were in German. Next time I'll read the fine print.

German speaking Venetians? Dec 19 2012
By S. Seligmann - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
My mother turned me on to the Brunetti books, so I ordered the series for her (she speaks German), and I knew these were in German when I ordered them. The episodes are beautifully filmed (I know Venice well), and so far seem faithful to the books. I am however having a hard time getting used to the lead actors speaking German, especially when you can hear Italian being spoken in the background in several scenes.

A well done TV series, but the gutteral German against the visuals of Venice is an odd disconnect.

Terrific Series Feb. 14 2012
By Sandra Reed - Published on Amazon.com

I've read all the books from this series by Donna Leon. The DVD's are true to the books as well as the characters who play the key roles. I only wish they were speaking Italian rather than German but it's still all good.
