The series is based on based on the books by canadian writer Janet Oak American Studio Hallmark specializing production broadcast classic TV shows and movies for family viewing. The project definitely turned out worth it, not even though that has not gained much popularity in the audience. For this series is always a pleasure to gather together as a family and to watch the good old classics that always wants to reach out to our callous hearts and to teach a valuable lesson.

The plot is simple — a young teacher and a rich heiress. Elizabeth Thatcher (Erin Krakow) goes to West, Coal Valley to teach at the school for the children of miners. In the way it waiting for adventure, but on arrival in the Valley she will meet special people who are true to themselves and willing to stand for each other. Get acquainted with amazing, brave women and men, their children will find themselves and love. For me this series not only a young teacher, but and the people who, even after the terrible tragedy that broke a family, does not lose presence of mind, and believe best are fighting for that are seeking to acquire. It turned out a kind of "the ballad of the fight", as in the same song.

Almost all the actors failed their characters, but best of all, for my opinion, coped Lori loughlin, who played Abigail Stanton Martin Cummins, who plays Henry's — both vivid, memorable characters. Like the game Erin Krakow, which very succinctly fit into the image Elizabeth Thatcher. Music is more background and not jarring. In the series is very nice, but the monotonous picture, more of a "cool" — mountains, forest, almost no of the sun, the same mining houses, but it's more of a plus than a minus — nothing detracts from the characters of events, because real paint in this story — its heroes are and nature, music and everything else it goes on second.

That not very much — a little ridiculous look of some of the inhabitants of the Valley, underlined by a neat and neat, white teeth, somehow it is unnatural for that time period. Not included Daniel Lissing in the role of constable, and later the main romantic hero, Elizabeth, Jack Thornton — seemed somehow too heroic, one-sided and uninteresting, even though all the skills of Sherlock Holmes, in matters of love turned out to be a complete ignoramus, just closer to the end of the first season began to somehow reveal how the character. And my other small niggle — virtually no opening theme, which is essence, should give a primary idea about the series. All very quickly, oiled, crumpled and at first I do not understand what they wanted to say its creators. Well and, to confess how many of the drama-melodrama, sometimes long and starts cloying. To protection say that despite that the plot of the series is a single line, it does not interfere with the story about the main and secondary characters of history, which is often the subject of several episodes in a row, and not provides highly bored in display.

In General, series "When calls the heart" ("When Calls the Heart") — this is a worthy adaptation of the books Janet Oak, good job Studio Hallmark and cast in an accessible form of a story about the eternal human values and how it is important though to listen to your heart. I recommend to family and individual viewing.

When I finished to watch the movie with the same name, which by the way is the prequel to this series, I had a feeling, with what now, must begin the most interesting, how does the main character will live in this town, but the film ended answering this issue the other hand, was thinking about how what that the children she needs to learn so that they were able to leave and find a better life, but Elizabeth itself, it has voluntarily deprived, imprisoned in a provincial town. But how changed my mind when I started watching this series! However not from...

First impression was unpleasant. The actors playing the main roles are changed! The actress, who plays Elizabeth seemed a poseur, and her beloved Jack is less sympathetic than in the movie. And all nothing, often because the sequels change actors (first frown, then you get used). But they changed the story — the last part of Mrs. Thatcher, which was and as she was in town. From a timid, frightened, accustomed to luxury girly, which was accompanied by a childhood friend and at the critical moment brought back to her attitude and determination to continue the journey, Elizabeth became a self-sufficient, courageous, very independent girl, who single-handedly overcomes a dangerous path. And because of the plot then it becomes clear that this character it will be much later, when she will live for some time in this town. I they threw first to watch the show. But later, I don't know why, still to him back. And then there were already other experience...

First, calmly took the series (the second season even seemed boring), but at some point I caught myself on the thought that the more I look the more into the series, opening in it all new and new faces, which is not expected which was a pleasant surprise.

This show teaches good, reciprocity, love, friendship, faith in God (don't worry, it's unobtrusive quite a relatively small extent of the series), the fact that everyone can have a second chance and everyone has their own talents and, of course, the fact that anything is possible if you follow your heart.

Elizabeth Thatcher has a rare gift of teaching and always finds a path to the hearts of his disciples.

Her beloved Jack Thornton also has many talents — and is not only the ability to protect those around him. people.

A friend and mentor Elizabeth — Abigail — the woman is surprisingly strong and bright, and inspiring.

About the other key figures to write not going to reveal the plot, so they appear in the beginning of the series.

Someone may declare that in life does not happen. So be it. But let there be more such films and TV series, so they served a good example. Enough already "real life" stories that let and show the truth, but more than this the truth create, so how their takes example to the younger generation.

PS looking forward season 5, due out in the spring of 2018.

Following the name of the series, I decided to leave a review here, because they called me heart. Stumbled on this film accidentally looked at the description and rating and decided to spend the time to view of this work. And I was wrong! Though I was a little embarrassed to transfer the spirit of the time (some of the hairstyles and snow-white smiles of the actors), this series stole my heart.

1. Plot. As I understood, the series is based on the same product because is very sorry no in the Russian language. The idea is awesome. A young girl, growing in abundance, received the profession of a teacher and went to mining town to teach. Spit on the difficulties and obstacles, she courting residents and children, runs the hard way with a good heart and an open smile on his lips.

Did not forget about minor characters, thanks to which film becomes more than history of the young teacher. All residents have one big loss, and despite the first sight, when it seems that all these people are equal in their grief, each of them reflects their world. A world in which everyone tells his story and teaches us to look at life different angles.

2. Actors. Erin Krakow is unmatched in this role. To it imbued with the first minutes of the film, and heart belongs to her. So nice, good, smart, beautiful, strong. Only her character is not able to cook, but and this sin is rather tricky plus than a minus. The game Daniel Lissing first does not believe because he ... too sweet (only such a word can pick up). But then different situations, he appeared and I saw the actor and personality. Of course, they are well in tune with Erin, I want to see them even more together. I like handled the role of Lori loughlin, but I like it seems too modern American, although I have not seen the Americans in the early 20th century, so my judgment is relative.

3. Mark in heart. Not know, may be I too sentimental, but this series has touched strings in my heart. In it has humor grace mind good durability of the spirit. All of what we sometimes not enough. This movie as the textbook of life. As and to make the decisions on how to handle problems to hope, how to find the right way.

For all these qualities, this series is recommended for viewing!
