With the vibe of a Disney movie, “Downton Abbey: A New Era” envelopes astonishing landscapes, wonderful settings, and costumes – as did the previous series and first film. Images filled with color and light describe two worlds that collide in dynamism: the servants of the house and the masters. This is accentuated by a peculiar situation: A movie is being shot in the mansion which determines a playful collaboration on the same level between all hierarchies with one common goal – the artistic production.

Although a visual savor, the film lacks qualitative dialogue and good rhythm. Not even through music is the narrative given more fluidity or accents. The diversity of elements is implemented almost as compensation for the lack of an interesting or profound storyline. Thus, a lot of pathetic moments occur.

If one seeks a light dessert with visually attractive decoration “Downton Abbey: A New Era” is a possible delight.
