Pillars of the Earth
It is not a movie, but a mini-series of 8 parts... I have just seen it, only one more episode to go. Great show, it shows England in the middle ages, king and the Church, their connections, political scams, plotting and how terrible the Church was (is)... Recommended to everyone.

Pillars, as in a TV version of the book?! Amazing book if you haven't read it! It's a huge book, and World Without End, the sequel is equally huge but amazing reads! Highly recommended as well Smile I'll be on the lookout for the mini-series!

RE: Pillars of the Earth
It is that exactly. And it is easier for me to watch some episodes, than to read a big book, I know it's stupid, but the way I'm used to follow things...

Can we put torrent links here, or should I remove it?

RE: Pillars of the Earth
Haven't watched the mini-series, but I read the book last year followed by World Without End. They are absolutely fantastic books.

I've heard good things about the mini-series, but I'm always disappointed by movies when I've read the corresponding book first. Some are still good as movies, but they just can't capture the entire story in the time they're given. A mini-series might have a better shot though.

I just finished it yesterday. It was pretty good, definitely worth the time.
