I have watched “The Pillars of the Earth”, Night Two last night at star movies again. A magnificent retelling of Ken Follett’s epic masterpiece, The Pillars of the Earth is set against a backdrop of war, religious strife and power struggles, which tears lives and families apart. There are four parts of the miniseries and this is the second part.
The miniseries was based from a great book of Ken Follett. At first, I thought it was a movie but then I found out that it was a miniseries. As the miniseries progress, it has shown more of a drama, focusing on characters and relationships. There is a suspense on what will happen next to the vicissitudes of a prior, characters involved and to their community that struggles to build a cathedral as they protect themselves during the 12th century. The empress Maud and Stephen are fighting for the crown of England after the death of Henry I.
In night two, a young and ambitious monk named Philipp who is the prior of Kingsbridge was captured. Jack, son of the outlaws Ellen was said to be dead but in the last scene her eyes suddenly open from being laid with the other dead bodies. I am so excited to watch the night three.
