Alles Malan S1Watch full episodes now
Afrikaans drama Alles Malan Season 1 is on Showmax and it is SA’s answer to Party Of Five – telling the tale of a multi-generational family and their day-to-day lives in the 13-episode season.
Alles Malan is set in the Paarl winelands and explores the Malan family and its various groupings. There’s a really cute theme, explain creators Corné and René van Rooyen. “Each episode is a month of the year, starting with January and the return of the oldest son Frik (Ivan Zimmermann) and his family from the UK, all the way through to Christmas (December and Christmas get an episode each).”
The producers went out of their way to cast a well-balanced line-up of established stars (like Albert Maritz, Elsabe Daneel, Ivan, Nadia Valvekens) and acting newbies like Greteli Fincham and Mateo Olivier, and it works well onscreen. The scripts have the right touch of comedy to make the family dynamic play out smoothly and it’s the kind of fun drama to stream when you don’t want something too heavy during lockdown.
