Weak adaptation
12 May 2006 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

I do not agree with Meitschi, since this is not a good adaptation of the novel. It is a very important thing in the novel that the readers see Mihály Tímár's doubts, and his fights with himself. He is a complicated, but good person.

After he has found Csorbadzsi's treasure, he thinks a lot, what he should do with it: If he gave it to Timea, her uncle, Brazovics would steal it. So he decides to keep it for himself to be able to rise the amount of the treasure by making good business with it. But he is still not sure that he has made the good choice: his conscience is not relaxed. And all these important things were omitted.

It was said in the film too, that Tímár helped many other people by his money . But it was not disclosed that he could help Teréza and Noémi only by his money, to be the island their property.

In Füred Krisztyán told Tímár a long story about his adventures, but in the film it was very short. I think it should have been longer.

But Dódi was really Mihály's and Noémi's child. We can understand it from the book, too.
