‘Transatlantic’ (2023). Netflix Miniseries: An (Almost) Brilliant English Choral Series

Translatlantic is a brilliant English series that tells us how 2000 refugees left France.


Transatlantic is a series created by Anna Winger starring Gillian Jacobs, Cory Michael Smith and Yoli Fuller. It is based on the novel by Julie Orringer.

Without dramatisms, with a wide range of complex secondary plots, aesthetically cared for, with meticulous production and, yes, a light comedy tone from the 30’s that might put some viewers off.

That hasn’t been the case with us, because we find it to be a delightful series.

About the Series

It is easy to watch and to savor in every shot. A series that aesthetically looks like a movie, that shows the loving care put into the production and, finally, the desire to make “a great series”. Of course, this “great series” does not receive this treatment with respect to the script and does not want to become the neo-noir epic that some will surely ask for. It has a touch more Wes Anderson to it than what they’d ask for, it is treated lightly and without depth… we even agree, but we can also see the originality and freshness of its treatment of the scenes in it.

A series worth taking a look at, without expecting it to be the epic of our lives, without expecting that touching “anguish” that, most likely, history would ask for, but interesting in terms of its conception, its interpretations and that so demodé sense of narrative.

A series consciously out of time.
