About 60% of the movie is read by the narrator & the other 40% are actors who use the exact words from the book. Now don't get me wrong, I love the story but when you make a movie you have to add some actors, make them play, show feelings, create a motion picture!!! Here we see mostly the narrator & in between there are short scenes with very mediocre performance. The whole movie is very similar in style to what you'll see in any other USSR movie of that time, so all in all, go read the story, it'll take you about the same amount of time & i'm confident that your imagination will be way more productive in picturing this story then imagining a narrator reading it!
