If you like different

If you like different, you'll like this movie. I read the book, it had some strange ideas, but interesting. I saw the movie, it was very similar to the book, strange, different and entertaining. I already knew the ending but managed still to be amazedby the author's skill. If you love imagination, you'll love this movie

This is probably a great book, but it is a book from the genre of magic realism....it doesn't translate to film well. The acting is fine, but the story just doesn't work on a screen.
