a very bad movie lack of essence
18 April 2008 | by (Barranquilla, Colombia) – See all my reviews

This is one of the poorest cinema movie of a grateful book.

if you only see the movie you can say that the history can be original or something like that, but if you first read the book you realize that the movie is like the 30% or 40% of the whole history, missing the essence of it. For example, the movie don't tell the history of the childhood of he boys before they get into the school, and do not talk about their families, and it ends when there is still more history to tell. There's a fundamental person in the movie that only appears once, "La pies dorados", she is a prostitute that the boys visit every time they are on sundays rest permission; in the movie she only appear once. To finish i say that is one of me the most lack of essence movie ever made about a beautiful and great books of all Latin American writers.
